This is obviously a self-published book. Nothing wrong with that but where the heck was the proof reading before it went to print? I haven't seen that many typo's, suspect grammar and words missing from sentences in a book since, well, I have never seen so many errors! A good editor would have taken this book from good (which is what I think it is) to really good or great.

Dr. Engrav is not a professional writer but with that said she does more than a passable job at relating life in an ER to the reader. Her stories are genuine and laced with humor, sadness, tragedy and some amazing triumphs.

I would recommend the book, it's a good read.

I was dumbfounded by the unprofessional writing in this book. As other Amazon customers have so aptly put it, the grammar, punctuation and common sense of this book completely overshadowed the literary content. I guess I have become spoiled by competent authors. It's obvious that no editor could have been involved in this mess. I found myself continuing to read it for the comic relief. No, the laughs were not intended by the author. Example: "Quickly the cop pulled out his Taser and tasted the patient." Really??? There were a multitude of similar careless errors which the author apparently didn't notice. This book is absolute amateur hour. Don't waste your time.

Anther excellent true story medical book.Really grate book .I find it truely amazing that 80percent of graduating Doctors and Vetrenerians are women how far we've come in 40years.This doctor takes you inside the loony tunes emergency room. It's like your standing right next to her.She gives you a extreme fast track in her world.From high accidents tripping over the family pet to to falling off roofs putting up Xmas light's.To unexpected deaths.And don't forget the complaints from patients family's and its not even the patient complaining.These E.R. docs has to put up with a lot.A Highly informative read A huge congrats on book.Happy New Year Chris or Pamela

This is a terribly and very low level book......I found myself seriously wondering if someone else wrote it, or if she just lacks a real publisher and perhaps dictated it without spell or grammar checking it? While there might be some interesting stories in it, I am a nurse myself and was very distracted by the writing. With a doctor's education, this should be better.

This was a sensitive account of what the folks at the ER go through. Well worth the time to read.

I've been an Emergency Medical Technician for 30 years so I enjoyed this book very much as I could relate to many of the situations and understood the language. I recommend this book.

Interesting in the difference between United Kingdom practice of medicine and the US. It was not as exciting and the patients stories were not as interesting as I had hoped, but it was good.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit but the editing bothered me at times. Worth a read though! It had some excellent stories and it was very insightful.
