1.0 out of 5 stars Research & Editing, 14 Aug 2007
This review is from: Who Cares?: One Family's Shocking Story of Care in Today's NHS (Paperback)
When I read this book, the first thought I had was, simple things like the medicines used were spelt incorrectly. If the author and editor couldn't be bothered to research the simple things such as these, how do I know they've researched the bigger things? Lazy editing and research in this case, if only the small things in the book hadn't been overlooked. When reading this book, I'd take a large pinch of salt.

THis is addressed to you Ms l. Halligan miss the point one star anal retentitive reviewer. I am ashamed to say that I was not fully aware of the family's pain.........being related to Amanda ( cousin ). My work took me to Coventry somewhere in the midst of this time. Amanda and I met for dinner one evening when she asked, if someone you love and care for asked you to let them go......could you do it? My reply was along these lines, although it would pain me, I would want them to be free of the pain and suffering that they were going through, it seems rather useless now having read the story, but Mandy you and yours are never far from our thoughts, and as for you Ms one star....it really would be impolite of me to write what you should go and do.

All I can say is you obviously have no compassion for others. I hope and pray you do not work within the NHS and I hope for your sake nothing like this ever happens to you or your family, if it did perhaps maybe then and only then you would be able to empathise with this truely awful situation!

I was privileged to be at a seminar where Amanda talked about her husband. I can assure you that the grief is real. Her story is one that needs to be told and has completely changed my perspective. I am a Student Nurse about to qualify and listening to Amanda was one of the best experiences throughout my training. Thanks Amanda for sharing your story I truely admire your courage and bravery.
