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.

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.

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

By J. Lesley TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 13 Feb 2010
Format: Paperback
Tom Reynolds has given each of us the opportunity to see what life is like for people who drive the ambulances to medical emergencies. Granted, once he gets to the location, the "emergency" might be an upset stomach or a runny nose, but it might also be a tiny baby who has died in it's crib.

This book has no plot, no named characters, no chronology, but what it does have is a realism that can only be achieved by someone who is living these events each and every day of his career. The incidents related here are from the blog Tom Reynolds writes concerning his job with the ambulance service in a section of east London. On my Kindle this book is divided into 211 chapters with each "chapter" being devoted to a single entry of his blog. They range all the way from the truly frivolous calls to those where he and his mates are unable to save the patient's life. Along the way he sometimes indulges in a little fanciful, playful writing about his job and he also vents his spleen about how the government is running the National Health Service. Also included is a lexicon of terms and abbreviations which will help the reader keep track of the various organizations and functions of the London Ambulance Service and a short note about the author, including his real name.

This is the second book relating information from Reynolds' blog, the first book being Blood, Sweat and Tea: Real Life Adventures in an Inner-city Ambulance. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to see real life situations on a daily basis through the eyes of someone who is there and keeps going back.

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.
