I loved this book. It is a compilation of various, TRUE, short stories from the ER, by different doctors. You laugh, you cry...and it will make you think twice about going to the emergency room for something minor!
great for those who don't have a lot of time to read,it is filled with tons of short stories!
Very entertaining and a quick read. I received it in the mail and read it that day. It's very hard to put down.
stories of patients that ER doctors have treated.... some are sad some are shocking.... A very interesting book that will keep you reading...............
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.
these type of books are a guilty pleasure of mine and this one was very good. having spent some time in the ER as a nurse and a patient, all of the essays ring true.you will laugh you will cry and at times you will not believe what you just read.AHHH humans,always a surprise
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.
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.
If you think this book is about funny stories, you are half right. There are many stories that will also make you cry.
Interesting, freaky, sad, stories of doctor's memorable er cases.
Loved this book! It basically tells you stories of things that have happened in the emergency room from the doctors point of view. Some are very sad and some are just unbelieveable. This book reads fast!
A great collection of stories from various ER doctors! Some of them made me laugh, some made me gasp in shock, and others made me cry. A good book for someone interested in medicine.
Heartfelt stories from the frontlines of the hospital. Will make you laugh, cry, and think!
This is an excellent book if you are into this kind of story. It is well written and engrossing all the way through. I really enjoyed it.
