This book was absolutely captivating! A fascinating, exciting, sad, yet uplifting look into the world of hospitals and nursing roles. The honesty was most refreshing.
It is a book that every health care worker should be reading, not once, but regularly. It is also a book that every layperson should read to get a better insight into the world of medicine-something that none of us can escape in our lives.
Thank you Ms. Terrence for this very important work of art!

This book is a graphic depiction of life in a hospital, it is funny, scary, emotional, and terrifyingly real. This should be on the reading list of every nursing school.
If you are an aspiring or current nurse you must read this, it may save a life.

Good read! Opens my eyes as a new grad RN! Never thought this many med errors would go unreported!
The reasoning behind not reporting is clear..nurses don't want to lose their jobs but human life is more valuable than this...

This book is a good read for new nurses to see how easily mistakes can happen. But several typographical errors were annoying.

I've been a nurse for over 20 years and as close as I am every day to the subject matter of this novel, I still found it exciting and worthwhile. The author obviously is passionate about nursing and its ideals of service and dedication to patients and their safety. The events she writes about are no less dramatic for being based on things that happen, unfortunately, all too frequently in hospitals. To Err Is Common is ultimately a song in praise of nursing and I found it encouraging and inspirational. Thank you!

Intelligently written by an obviously bright, highly experienced and understanding RN with a wry sense of humor. Should be read by all in and out of healthcare.
