Dr. Clark takes the reader on a true and real journey of the little known or seen life of an EMT. The recollections are reality based, sometimes brutally so, but always with the dignity of the players kept in mind. This book will help people better understand and appreciate the work the EMT's do on a daily basis. The work we really don't think or worry about until we need their help. While the heroes of 9/11 will always be in the forefront of our minds, let us not forget the other EMT's who have and continue to keep our world safe. This should be required reading for all prospective nurses and doctors!
