5-0 out of 5 stars excellent
Very useful and have already used it myself twice . And very accurate .

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Medical Resource
I was introduced to this book while in the Amazon basin...It was a very handy tool for treating minor problems and emergency first-aid since medical help was hours away.I highly recommend the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have!
I recently returned from a week in Guatemala. We had a very basic health clinic set up. This book was invaluable for may things- rehydration solution, drug doses, all in an easy to use format. Although I'm an NP, this basic guide was a blessing for village medicine. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for medical interpreters!
This is a fantastic reference for people interested in working as a medical interpreter. The information presented is practical, well-organized, and addresses the impact of culture on health care. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a valuable self-training manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars fant�stico
excelente contenido,muy pr�ctico,favoreciendo una filosofia de la medicina como curaci�n de salud,est�s donde est�s,sea donde sea,al precio que sea,a quien sea.Bueno para transportar y bueno para no perderse entre miles de p�ginas y complejas explicaciones. Muy �til para solucionar algunas de las causas de muerte del 90por cien de la poblaci�n,los no-occidentales,especialmente latinoam�rica.

5-0 out of 5 stars It is absolutley the most valuable book to have!
I loved reading this book from a friend that I was compelled to special order it on the same day I read it! I never buy books but this book changed my life. I spread the news about it and now all of my friends have boughtthe book too. I'll be going to Mexico and will be taking extra copiesof Donde No Hay Doctor with me. I plan to distribute them to rural andliterate families. I hope this book will be announced more especiallywithin the Hispanic Communties. I can only wish this book is read atleast once and that people will see how invaluable it is. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book
Too bad there are'nt more writer's of the same mind, filling in the gap between costly expertise andlayman srticture. The book is a well-balanced workbetween hand drawn illustrationsand simple, succinct text, explainingprocedures for teeth cleaning,pulling, simple filling, brokenteeth, etc.,to the uneducated, 3rd -worldvillage healthcare worker, anddescribes how toconstruct the necessary instruments and materialsout of what bits can befound at hand, for all the procedures.At one end, we pay for thedentist's scent & muzak, at the other, with this book, they discardtheintervening fluff and tripeand get something done themslves.Actually, thebook deals with poorer standards than readersanywhere else would like toseeaddressed.

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellant book for those traveling in the wilderness.
Where there is no Dentist by Murray Dickson is an excellant book for those traveling in remore areas of the world.Information in the book will allow the non dental care person to give emergency care to those they may come incontact with in third world countries as well as themselves or companions. This book and a small dental kit will get one through the journey and backto civilization with reduced or "cured" pain fron the dentaldemons. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars new Reformation
As we watch news reports of the world in chaos and trouble this Book offers not just salve to ease the pain of some of these small communties but also real solution as they being to restore their dignity with justice for all involved. 5-0 out of 5 stars A methodology for durable social change in poor communities
The poor communities of the world are, unfortunately, a laboratory for many thousands of mostly failed experiments in how to improve their situation.This important and valuable book builds on decades of practical experience by the authors in the successful, durable transformation of poor communities.The authors' key insights are (1) the necessity for change to be driven by the collaboration of the community, outside experts, and local government; (this may seem obvious, but many projects fail because they treat one of these three groups as an enemy or obstacle rather than a vital element), (2) to have measurable results, (3) to use the power of the community to modify behavior that is an obstacle to success.This book should be read by donors as well as those directly involved in development activities such as community leaders, government officials, and NGO workers. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrid
Pray that you do not have a class that requires this book. Most of the articles in this compilation are poor examples of what a health care professional should know. Since this is a compilation of articles, half the terms used have no straight forward definitions, and of course there is no glossary. You will find yourself constantly referencing previous works by the various authors to try to make sense of anything. Beware!! ... Read more
