Comments Body Trauma: A Writer's Guide to Wounds and Injuries

  1. Body Trauma is a good reference tool when quickly looking up possible injuries to make characters suffer It is clearly written from the medical perspective, which if you aren t familiar with can be a little daunting I wish the author had included responses from patients who have suffered particular injuries to let prospective writers into the injured head space a bit , but can see how that would be difficult Still, first hand accounts are always helpful when trying to explain how a particular in [...]


  2. Despite the obvious morbidity of the book, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Body Trauma I find it extremely informative and written in a way that s easy to understand even without any prior medical knowledge The book is formatted in a way that categorises the various wounds by the area of injury which is handy for the writer who requires a trauma reference without having to plough through the entire book all over again I appreciate the way Body Trauma covers the basics of what happens in the OR ER a [...]


  3. Part of the Howdunit series a collection of writer s guides giving reference on such subjects as homicide, how PIs work, con jobs, forensic medicine, and poisons , Body Trauma is all about what the name entails non lethal injuries and their treatments.There s a lot of good, clear information in here If your character is a doctor or if an injury and its treatment are central to the plot, than you can probably get something good out of this But don t go in looking for hypotheticals what it feels l [...]


  4. 3.5 stars.Not the invaluable go to book I was expecting it to be for some pretty specific RPG purposes, but a good reference nonetheless There was a definite emphasis on modern trauma care It wasn t what I was looking for, nor was it something I had much initial interest in, however, it ended up educational and interesting in its own right It shames me to say this, but before reading the book I had given little thought to why exactly the first patient to get immediate treatment isn t always the [...]


  5. Useful and interesting, both for writers of action, war, and crime fiction and for anyone interested in how the body works or doesn t work when the machinery gets broken A lot of books and movies are diminished by incompetence in this area, like that shown when a character gets knocked unconscious, and then wakes up alert and ready to spring back into action he or she would actually have a concussion and would probably be dizzy, throwing up, and suffering from a migraine like headache.If you re [...]


  6. A solid, clearly written overview of injuries as they might be of interest to a writer, with a bias towards treatment and recovery The humor is a bit well, morbid, but it works very well and makes some of the denser subjects easier to swallow For me, though, the book felt a mile wide and an inch deep I would have liked to see detail in some sections rather than so many different scenarios high altitude, diving, venom, breakdown of hospital procedure, etc Of course, as a fantasy writer, I would [...]


  7. A good reference for anyone dealing with the medical aspect of fiction At times it gets too wordy and techincal for the casual observer It would ve been helpful for me if it had been related to this action causes this reaction instead of this insert medical condition here is shown by this, treated by this, etc It also lacks some sections there is nothing about comas, which I d hoped would be touched on.


  8. This is a fabulous resource for all sorts of different injuries, presented in a frank, concise manner It s organised depending on what kind of trauma you want to bestow upon your poor character s and gives an overview of each non lethal injury Not for the squeamish or faint of heart as it does have descriptions of, well, bodily harm There are even helpful diagrams to further illustrate different injuries and concepts.


  9. Didn t read cover to cover because it isn t really relevant to the type of writing I do, but seems to detail accurately wounds and injuries in such a way that an author can then write about them descriptively.


  10. Great reference book overall, but definitely geared toward modern trauma response I d have liked to see info about how these types of injuries were handled through the ages Still, quite useful as a writing tool.


  11. You re probably better off just consulting the first aid section of the Boy Scout Handbook If you need specifics researching a book, consult an actual physician or a medical textbook This book seemed far too general and theoretical to be of much use.


  12. Body Trauma by David W Page A writer s guidebook dealing with non fatal or potentially non fatal injuries Writer s guides like these are also often good reader s guides textbooks for laymen, as it were.




  13. An invaluable reference book for writers, who has any type of wounds or injuries in their stories It certainly helped me when I wrote my first book.




  14. A must have for writers who plan to deal with injuries in their works Great for role playing game advocates as well
