Simply excellent, informative, and some insight into our medical system. The message when related to hospitals, and the like is to ALWAYS ask questions no matter how foolish or silly you may feel. Often, too often, doctors make "safe" calls/decisions, NOT taking into consideration the INDIVIDUAL patient.

This book really gives you an inside look of what it is like working in the er and from the Dr.'s perspective. Could not put the book down until the end.
