Product Description


For everyone who has ever wondered "how on earth" or "why in the world" people do the dirty work of prison guards, cops, community police, long-distance truck drivers, secretaries, nurses, HIV/AIDS/addiction caregivers, forensic pathologists and their technicians, or even cultural ethnographers in the academy, this book will be a tantalizing, provocative, enlightening, and entertaining read. --H.L. "Bud" Goodall, Jr., Director and Professor at the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, Arizona State University

HASH(0x9fb1390c) out of 5 stars Entertaining read 17 Nov. 2009
By Mary E. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a nurse of 27 years I could not be more pleased with the review on my profession. The authors interviewed real people and gave a realistic portrayal of what nursing is like. They captured our bizarre sense of humor, our joys and heartbreaks. Truly a wonderful read.
