If you like hearing about real-life stories of what emergency medical doctors and nurses face on a daily basis, you'll love this book. It consists of different true experiences from medical personnel all over the United States, some stories so touching you'll want to cry, others that will make you break out laughing. Many of the stories are only a page or two long, so it's great for those of us who only have a moment to read in our busy lives. But don't be surprised if that quick break you take to read this book lasts two hours, because you simply cannot put it down. Well written and filled with compassion, anguish and humor. Not for the squeamish, but that's what makes this book so great.

Collection of vignettes from Emergency Room doctors and nurses. Some are funny, some sad, some strange, but all fascinating portrayals of the human animal at its best and worst.

If you think this book is about funny stories, you are half right. There are many stories that will also make you cry.

I thought that this book was really great because all of the stories are true. Some of them are really funny, but some are heart wrenching. Working in a hospital and having a few stories of my own makees me feel that I can relate to the doctors in the ER. I work the floors, but there are quite a few things that go on up here that doesn't happen down there. I would recommend this book for anyone who works in health care.
