Product Description

About the Author

Tom Reynolds began work for the NHS when he was 23 and specialised as an A&E nurse. He moved to the London Ambulance Service when he discovered that ‘he wanted to ‘torture the patients in A&E’. In his own words, this is ‘not healthy’. He has kept his critically-acclaimed blog since 2003 and is frequently quoted in the national press.

Reading this book will put any minor annoyances you have into perspective. Here are the absolute dregs of society. Here also are some of the unsung heroes of every day life - not just the ambulance crews but ordinary people who will go that extra mile to help their neighbours or even complete strangers. On more than one occasion the author has his prejudices challenged and is happy to accept that first impressions can be wrong.

There are heartwarming stories and heartbreaking stories often both on the same shift. There are also some good examples of why any ambulance service is so stretched - because people call an ambulance for trivial reasons. In many cases it is the people who really need an ambulance who do not call one. Drunks and drug users provide much of the author's work and the he makes abundantly clear what he thinks of these people though he will treat them in the same professional manner as any other patient.

I liked the way the book challenged my own prejudices about certain groups and I really enjoyed the author's plain and simple style of writing. There could be a temptation to over egg the pudding with this sort of subject matter and provide dialogue containing many swear words and descriptions containing too much gore. The author rises above this and his writing is all the more powerful for being understated. If you like accounts of people's jobs then you will love this.

Having downloaded as one of my first "proper" book on my new Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, 6" Display, Graphite - Latest Generation it was an excellent read providing an interesting insight into the world of an paramedic through a series of blog posts. Following up from Blood, Sweat and Tea: Real Life Adventures in an Inner-city Ambulance this is more of the same and bang up to date. Once again the original blog posts are edited to keep only the most interesting and updated with comments this book is easy to read and rings true for real life. Set in London the author keeps us entertained throughout with the use of humour alongside interesting stories - well worth downloading. The only reason this doesn't get five stars (the content is worth it) was the formatting on the Kindle was sometimes a little awkward.

I'm another avid reader of Tom's blog and devoured his first book, so I was very happy when my pre-ordered copy of his second came through my letter box on Saturday. I started reading, almost forgot to go to the gym and finished it within the day, it's also inspired me to re-read his first book.

Tom's writing is witty and intelligent, and you can see this is a man who really loves his job but is also incredibly frustrated by it, you will spend most of the book giggling, some sighing and shaking your head, and a little part sad. Despite being an avid reader of his blog I only recognised a few things, but I still wanted to read them again, there was no stale repetition here, but a refreshing read

As per the title of my review.....I myself did download this book hoping/expecting exciting, over the top, jaw dropping tales. But instead was confronted with something real and personable, which was unexpectantly refreshing and better then i hoped for.

It's a true look at the life of an ambulance driver, real emotions, real events. I have always respected this profession very much as they are who we turn to at our most vunerable and needy. But it renewed that respect, for what they endure every day and how they conduct themselves when most of us would of said/done differently in a similar situation. I now smile my most sincerest 'thankyou/gratitude' smile as i pass a paramedic - they probably are thinking that i might be a 'call-out' in the near future as i smile like a demented monkey, but i only do so more intently as the result of reading this book.

Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book, it's an easy read, but it isn't going to set the world on fire. I wanted to know more about paramedics after reading "Call the Ambulance", which is a better read. The main failing for me is that this book is a compilation of blog entries, rather than a novel with themed chapters. Each entry in turn is interesting, sometimes humorous, other times tragic, but they work better as a blog, which by its very nature is a forum for various observations and musings. As a book I expected more. That said it's well written and I did enjoy the variety of different entries. I was shocked by the number of people who use ambulances for everyday things like a cough or cold and the number of calls for regulars be they drunks or timewasters. Ambulance staff do an amazing job and the fact next to no-one says thank you to them astounds me.

This book continues on from the book Blood, Sweat and Tea and if you were a fan of that, then you will certainly enjoy this book. It is a collection of tales from a crew member of the London Ambulance service.

It reads like a blog with short chapters that will have you laughing, crying or tutting in anger at the way in which Ambulance services are abused by the unworthy and at the expense of other legitimate patients.

Easy to read and in nice bite size chunks. The text formatting is good, with no mid sentences turned into paragraphs or merged chapters. In terms of VFM, when I first got this it was being given away free of charge on the Kindle, but there is now a charge, but it is a small price to pay for a little humour and a glimpse into the goings on in the Ambulance Service.
