Read this and feel good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holiday SOS (Hardcover)
This is a pretty light and easy read, written in a very accessible style (and a bit badly proof read in parts) that will make you feel good for two reasons - a) if you are on holiday and insured then help is not far away in the form of Dr Ben MacFarlane and b) there are some genuinely decent people out there trying to help others.
I was actually a bit moved by this book which left me thinking that Dr Ben McFarlane (if that is his real name) is such a decent bloke and just who you need when things are going badly wrong from a health point of view.
The action is fast paced and not too repetitive (other than he travels and picks up patients but that is kind of obivous) with some really distressing stories but heartening too.
It's not like 'Direct Red' or Atul Gawande's books, it isn't meant to be, but it is a worthwhile read - really very good indeed.
