    I'm glad you folks enjoyed it. I just couldn't get in to it. Something about the narrative style made me feel so distanced from the stories. I felt super conscious the whole time that I was hearing someone's story, rather than being able to fall in to it and forget I was reading.

    Such a great book. Gave it to some other flight nurses and even though they've been flying for a few years now, they loved the book too

    I really enjoyed the book when I read it a couple of years ago. It was a factor on why I went through EMT training, it made me realize that I loved emergency medicine.

    I just finished to book also. Wow what a story. I love the fact that she rides horses too. I have recommended this book to all of my medical and veterinary minded friends.

    Excellent book, I've read it twice (both editions). Can't say enough about it!

    I know this is an old thread. Is there a difference in the first and second edition? If I just finished the second would it be worth reading the first now?


    Thanks

    trauma junkie...dont need a book or movie. Some nurses like me, thrive on trauma, makes me feel human. and I get paid for it.
    you get creative in your care, because sometimes whats available does not work. But once you get the patient stabilized, you start breathing again.

    So you're posting in a thread about the book because.....you want us to know you didn't read it? Okey dokey.
