I bought this book origanally because my husband works as a charge nurse in the ER with Dr Mark Brown (the Author) I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I was not dissapointed! The moment I started reading I never put it down.There were so many stories. I couldnt help myself, I read it from beggining to end without stopping! I myself, am in nursing school, after reading this book I have decided the ER is where I need to be. I found myself laughing out loud, tearing up and praying for a good ending... sometimes all in the same story. I recommend this book to anyone interestead in the true stories of the ER, and anyone wanting to know more about the differnt world in which Doctors, Nurses and Techs subject themselves to daily. Keep a box of Kleenex nearby for both happy and unhappy tears. I can't wait for Vol 2!!!

This book is well written and includes some interesting stories of the ER. I am a pharmacy student and found this to be both sad and funny at times, since I can relate to some of the situations. My mom is currently reading it and thinks it is very entertaining and enlightening. I was even reading it in a doctor's office and the doctor asked where I got it because he wanted to read it. So basically, this is a very good book that lets you into the lives of some emergency professionals. Maybe the book would even help the average person go a little easier on emergency personnel after they know what they go through.

This book was a lot of fun to read. The author put together a humorous look at the Emergency Room patient and the troubles that doctors face. You'll be amazed and amused as you read through case file after case file. This book is a quick read and one that will keep you in "stitches!" Well worth the money!

Some of the funniest and grossest short stories that I've ever read. Not even sure if grossest is a word, but that's the only way to describe some of them.

I am an ER tech at a busy hospital. I read this book in 2 days! (It usually takes me 3 months to read a book this size.) I have to say that I have seen some things very similar to a lot of the stories. This book made me laugh so hard at most of the silly things patients went to the ER for...or things they said. It is so true! This is a great book for anyone who wants to know exactly how the ER employees handle some of the things they have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. After reading it and telling a few people at work about it, several people wanted their own copy of the book. I told them I got it at Barnes and Noble and that they only had one copy in the store. Several of them wanted a copy so bad that they went to the store to order it!

This was an awesome book that showed me a lot about the ER. It was like reading Untold Stories of the ER.

I want to be an Emergency Room Doctor one day, and this book sealed the deal. All the true stroies were unbelievable, and exciting. This book was a true page turner; I could never put it down. Once I finished reading the book, I wanted more.
