This book was very badly written. There was a lack of punctuation, people being introduced when they had just been mentioned three pages earlier (see pages 57 and 60). Also, a subject would be introduced then would go off track for a couple of pages before coming back to the subject (see page 243 to 245). However the most annoying aspect was the personal attacks on virtually everyone who crossed paths with the writer such as 'scruffy looking', 'a nose that is a bit large for her face', 'stinking of hair get and cheap aftershave', 'an oily type'. This did not endear me to the writer. The days on the ward seemed to be filled with hours spent looking for staff whilst on nights the patients couldn't sleep for the noise the staff made. I have no doubt there were problems at Mid Staffs and the battle with management and the powers that be were predictable. A book needed to be written but this is not it. Interesting that it is self published.
