A&C Black shapes up for summer with first aid guide
29.04.10 | Helen Nianias
A & C Black is bringing out a new Kit Bag Guide, First Aid for Sport, in the spirit of the improving weather and the new-found zeal for outdoor sports as we edge towards summer.
The first aid guide will be published on 1st July this year in paperback priced £9.99. First Aid for Sport, by Andy Cunningham, a lecturer in sports therapy, is a quick-reference guide designed for on-the-spot first aid administration.
The guide has large colour photographs for ease of reference in the event of an emergency. The book is designed to have clear step-by-step instructions and is the same style as the publisher’s First Aid at Sea title. First Aid for Sport is formatted in landscape and is slightly smaller than A4 to fit into kit bags.
The book is intended to help people administer basic first aid while waiting for professional medical help. The weather-proof book is spiral bound so it can lie flat on the ground while it is being used.
Naomi Webb, publicity executive at A & C Black, said: “We’ve set the publication date for July because it’s warm, people will have started playing sport again and people will really be taking an interest in getting outdoors.”
