 "Mike Cyra is a good friend of mine, and I do want to recommend his new book AND his web site. His book is Emergency Laughter. Mike is a former medic with a great sense of humor AND humanity. I think you will really enjoy this book, if you are-as I am-a fan of real life medical books!
Ann Rule, New York Times Bestselling Author.

Seriously funny situations! I'll admit to being a bit biased. I worked with Mike for eight years on that fish processing ship in the Bering Sea. Mike was pee-your-pants funny then and his humor comes across loud and clear in this book. I want to assure you all that when the fish guts hit the fan, Mike was always 100 percent professional... but the rest of the time? Watch out!

Buy the book! Mike will pocket enough money to have a beer... and you'll WANT to buy him a beer after reading this book!

I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the situations the author GOT himself into. I could visualize them, as if I were standing there watching it all first hand. This was a very quick read, or it was a quick read, because I found myself not wanting to put it down. Either way, it is a book, that you will enjoy reading. It gives you some insight into the way our EMT's make light of a stressful job.

I love Mike Cyra's writing.He puts you through an entire range of emotions.Hystericily funny,shocking and touching all at the same time.It's exciting to peer over the shoulder of this fearless and highly competent EMT as he recounts his tales.It reminds you it takes a certain grit to do be a first responder.No matter how horrific or outrageous the story,Mike relates to the reader thru his humanity and compassion.I highly reccomend this book,it hung in my memory and somehow made me feel a bit more prepared forthe unthinkable.

Emergency Laughter is no placebo; it's the real thing, the hard drug of humor that lingers in your brain for eternity. The first chapter will bring you to your knees, the second will kick you in the gut, and the third will lay you flat and totally addicted until the end, leaving you groveling for more. If you love to laugh, and you love to cry, and you love to laugh and cry and scream all at the same time ... this book is your prescription to happiness.

This book was fun from beginning to end. Since I've worked in the medical field in various jobs, I can relate to the stories the author has told (although I never got myself into the situations he did!) A fast, funny read, would highly recommend for anyone that wants a good laugh or 20.

This book is a riot! I haven't read anything this funny in a long time. I'm only about halfway through because I was reading it on a plane at night and I was trying to laugh quietly, but there was no way I could keep it quiet. This is brilliantly written. I love how the writer combines the real life drama with what's going on inside his head at the time, combined with his thoughts about the events as he's reflecting back writing this book. We get a very well rounded perspective of the events, which makes the events hysterically funny since you can easily get very clear mental pictures and it's easy to feel the emotions of the situation as things progress. I recommend this book to everyone.

First of all, I should start by admitting that I am not an easy person to entertain to the point of me lauging out loud, even by standup comedians.

That being said, I decided to try a sample of this book after reading previous 15 reviews thinking it would be just a light read to make me smile. I read the free sample - first story - and, to my own surprise, I literally laughed out loud. I ended up buying it without second thought.

however i should warn you not to commit the same mistake I did-reading it in public. not only will you waste a good opportunity of laughing liberally, you will find yourself feeling like a looney with stomachache from holding the laughter. I literally shed tears because of that.
