That is what makes the book such a great read,I thought it might be a bit predictable,but every story is different and has different outcomes,which I would expect' but the author tells it in such an intense fashion that you can feel his pressure that he was going through in each story.
I had a bad trauma accident that has left me permitly impaired for life,I went through five years of not know if I would lose my left leg as a result.Thankfully I didn't, but it changed my life forever and have a steel pin up to my knee holding my ankle together,all also on strong pain killers and still recovering as I write this review,my bone is still growing around latest pin or fusion I had done.
This book has made me realize how lucky I am to have amazing doctors,surgeon's around,but most importantly is guys like Andy the author who are first on the scene and are the ones that save your life and try there best to make sure it's a good outcome for you.I have nothing but total respect for them,they are angels in my eyes,there quick thinking actions in adrenalin fuelled pressure on there behalf is amazing and Andy gives you a no holes barred account of the daily pressure they face in twelve hours each day.Read more ›
That aside, it provides an accurate account of the situations faced by paramedics and technicians in the ambulance service, and acts as a great revision/factual aid with good medical knowledge to back up the story lines.
A highly recommended read to new and would be paramedics and anyone with a hunger for knowledge!!
Well done Andy x
I can only hope and pray that if myself, family and friends ever need a paramedic that we will be lucky enough to have an Andy Thompson!
I would never be brave enough to be a paramedic, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy and all the other paramedics on this earth who ARE brave and resilient enough.
It is the likes of yourselves along with Doctors, Nurses etc who should be paid the wages that our premiership footballers receive......
