Book Description

28 May 2009

The sequel to the bestselling memoir Blood, Sweat & Tea.

Tom Reynolds is an ambulance worker.

On any given day he can be attacked by strangers, sworn at by motorists, puked on, covered in blood and other much more unpleasant substances. He could help to deliver a baby in the morning and witness the last moments of a dying man in the afternoon. He deals with road accidents, knife attacks, domestic violence, drug overdoses, neglect and suffering.

And you think you’re having a bad day at work?

Tom blogs about his experiences at the end of each shift. His Random Acts of Reality website has a huge following with over 30,000 visitors every day. He is an internet legend and a remarkable writer.

His first book, Blood, Sweat & Tea came out of nowhere to be a surprise bestseller in 2006. Readers were stunned by the stories he had to tell and impressed by the sheer quality of his writing. Critics who sneer at blogs-to-books have never read this one.

More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea charts the past two years of Tom’s life as an ambulance worker. He is tired, he is frustrated and he is more pissed off than ever but he still manages to capture the more moving, heartwarming and inspirational moments alongside the chaos.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the first one 30 May 2009
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A super sequel - more ambulance adventures 1 Oct 2010
By Jack Percival TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply Brilliant. 2 Jun 2009
By A. Gray
Format:Paperback
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

4.0 out of 5 stars More tales from the Ambulance service 2 Feb 2014
By SBno1 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars All short stories 17 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some parts were interesting but it was made up of many short stories/chapters which was frustating. It did highlight some of the ridiculous requests by some members of the public

4.0 out of 5 stars Real and undramatic 24 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
