    Having spent a summer and the actual hospital, and talking with the author this book is true, honest and hides nothing. Great book, interesting, thrilling, and informative.

    Excellent, Easy to Read

    I am interested in medicine and have found the book to be very informative on the day in the life of an intern. It was well written. You seem to get a feel and sympathy for the interns. Personal and informative.

    I Can Totally Relate..even the Roaches!

    I have owned this book for over 15 years now, and I read it regularly. I especially enjoy the humourous anecdotes of Mark, although all 3 Interns write wonderfully informative, pure, realistic accounts of what it is like to be an Intern. I am a Registered Nurse with over 24 years experience, and I empathize with all 3 of you sleep, scut,'s all there, and it's all still there. I would be very interested to know how these 3 doctors and their families are, and what areas of medicine they have chosen to pursue as Specialties, if any, or have they remained in General Practice? My heart was with them every step of the journey they took, and kudos to them for being brave enough to share their feelings and experiences with us. Mark, you have made me laugh so many times...Carole, you've got a live one! Amy, I'm a mother, too, so I know the tug-of-war between balancing work and home. Andy, I hope you and Karen settled, and I hope you all are thriving. Hope to hear something from someone in the know, or maybe Dr. Marion, who piloted the project...a resounding success, I'd say. Fondly, Janet Henderson, B.A, Reg.N, Toronto, Canada

    I can't put it down!

    I'm reading this book in the hopes of formulating a strategic approach on how to survive the yearlong internship. This book truthfully depicts the interns' struggles to survive, with the basic necessities of food, sleep, and general maintenance always seemingly out of their reach.
