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 loved the book. I worked over 15 yrs. in the ER and it was my favorite nursing job. The book might seem a little crazy to some, but it captures the unusual things that happen in ERs! No two days alike and great esprit de corps that exists among staff in the ER. People don't work there unless they love it and so they work well together. Plenty of tragedy but enough little emergencies and even funny things so it doesn't get you down. This author captures it!

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'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.

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.

Great book! I've read it twice. I always thought that life in the ER must be interesting at times and I enjoyed reading some of Dr. Engrav's most memorable experiences. The real life stories are entertaining and thought-provoking. The book describes both humorous and serious cases that the author and her coworkers have encountered. It's the real life stuff that makes the good stories and viewing on television shows like Grey's Anatomy, ER, etc. If you always wanted to be a "fly on the wall" to see what really goes on in the ER, you'll enjoy this book too.
