Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a frank, quick-paced personal narrative filled with humor, drama, and grim reality, Schrader relates the day-to-day drama of dealing with human catastrophe as a firefighter and emergency medical technician on the streets of Atlanta. His deafness was almost an afterthought, although Schrader often had to fight discrimination in his job. With courage and without fanfare, he fulfilled his dream of being an EMT, building a 15-year career and one of the longest service records in the city at the time. The gritty and gutsy details of many of the calls for help that he describes will grip readers. Writes Schrader, "we expected the unexpected and when we were lucky, we helped those who really needed it." For popular collections.

Emily Ferren, Carroll Cty. P.L., Westminster, Md.

Format: Hardcover
I believe this book is a very inspiring book that tells you how one lives its life. It gives me a very vivid picture of what the author is writing about, It is like a book come alive, and it's like a movie in some way. I am very proud of this man who sees an opporunity and takes it and achieves it. I can see a deaf man who can do anything, Not even blood stops this man. Death overflows this book, I can see the smoke of the dark cloud come out of this book and it feels scary but is also a very inspirating book which is full of true scenes that happened to him. I recommend anyone to read this book. It may encourage young kids to achieve their dreams and not to let anything stop them. Who can be an Emt like this man and face alot of discrimation? I wonder who can stand this much?
Read this book!

As someone whom is in ems, and fire, this book found me and I it. Also, I am taking ASL. Very few books keep my attention. The author writes well
and keeps my attention page after page. This book covers the subject of ambulance work along with firefighting but mostly medical responses. I've not
had the experiences so intense as the author. I would have like to read more about his sister, and his work in the morgue at a hospital. This
book could have easily been longer and full of more stories. Leave them wanting more. That is definitely the case with this book. Not since Jar Head
the movie and book and Catch me if you can, book and movie have I enjoyed a book like this. This book is shocking yet heart felt. Anyone in ems will
easily relate. Enjoy

I really liked this book. I couldnt find it in my town and needed it for a school assignment. It got here on time and in good condition. It took a little bit longer to get to me than I expected but I got the assignment done on time. I recomend this book.
