Dull and arrogant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood, Sweat and Tea: Real Life Adventures in an Inner-city Ambulance (Kindle Edition)
I got this as my first installment on my brand new shiny Kindle and was excited to try out my gadget with what appeared to be an interesting book.
How I was disappointed. I found the concept fabulous, however, the author came across as a stuck-up ambulance driver (and not actually a paramedic I found). As a midwife I was appalled at his swooping generalisation that all midwives "have a chip on their shoulder the size of Africa" for sending that lady home. Then the next sentence he comments on his WHOLE 1 day experience of midwifery care that he admittedly slept through?!?! How is he justified to make the judgement and usurp a highly qualified member of specialist staff that the lady was in the second stage of labour?!
This un-needed and arrogant comment left me wishing I hadn't already spent the 49p required to purchase his second installment.
I thought his tone towards the public and writing style made him appear self important and I feel some humility would not have gone amiss here.
