Was that his personal rig ? Or one that was parked & made into a kind of Big Easy legend ? Doesn't matter. Is badass. That Graffiti art said it all. This is the second EMT/Medic autobiography I've read and I gotta say, this one ruled.
The author takes readers on a wild ride. Some of the calls he describes are unbelievably horrific, so much so that I couldn't believe they happened i.e it was embellishment. But thinking about it, IDK, emergency medicine by nature defies all convention. They see the best and the worst.
B.J Schneider is an extremely likable storyteller. Pretty riveting. I can see this made for T.V but I almost don't trust a director to do it justice.
My major problem with it is it seems like a rough draft. Many words are misspelled or are replaced by homophones. Theres weird capitalizations, word errors (ex missing ING at the end of words), lacking punctuation, and the general story flow just seems off. Also, there is no updates on the people involved. Most of the stories end with no real finish.
Still, its a decent read. Its better than 3 stars, not quite 4. Id give it a "real" 4 if it was edited properly.
In the end, I couldn't finish it. The exceptionally poor grammar and misuse of homophones, the lack of basic subject/verb agreement and utter disregard for punctuation proved too much to wade through. For example, the author bemoans "vane" people and laments a young man's overreaction to his own "scared face". The author and his ambulance "role" up to a scene. The author finds a Starbucks in a foreign country, which he calls a "Bastian" of home. He randomly capitalizes nouns and changes tenses mid-sentence.
The description of the second edition claims it has been "professionally edited", but I see no evidence of that.
As to the content, many of these stories would be grounds for the loss of his certification, or possibly jail time.
