Format: Paperback
As soon as I picked up this book I was living in the past. This book really took me back in time....bringing back many long-forgotten and happy memories of the 1950's. It was amazing also how the author's training experiences mirrored my own... a highly recommended, entertaining read, very well-written that has you engrossed from start to finish

Once I'd picked this book up, I couldn't put it down: I found it a rivetting read from start to finish. It certainly brought the memories flooding back.
It has something in it for everyone, including a good old-fashioned romance...plus a healthy does of humour.
After I'd finished reading it, I gave it to my daughter to read (who is not a nurse) and she also enjoyed it, saying she expected it to be slighty stuffy and not her thing, but instead she found herself caught up in the days of rock and roll and Teddy Boys, and said this book was written so she could picture it all really clear as if she were there (and she wasn't born to the seventies!)and had plenty else to interest her apart from just the nursing.
Well recommended!

This book is simply written, possibly too simple to be of interest to anyone but nurses. The author, or the editor, doesn't appear to understand the rules of apostrophes and they appear in the wrong place more often than not. Some lovely spelling howlers too including 'prostate' spelled with a middle R making it 'prostrate'. Sister would not be amused!

HASH(0x98f67e34) out of 5 stars great book 16 Feb. 2005
By daisy chain45 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Once I'd picked this book up, I couldn't put it down: I found it a rivetting read from start to finish. It certainly brought many memories flooding back.

It is very well written and has something in it for everyone, including a good old-fashioned romance...plus a healthy dose of humour.

After I'd finished reading it, I gave it to my daughter to read (who is not a nurse) and she also enjoyed it, saying she expected it to be slighty stuffy and not her thing, but instead she found herself caught up in the days of rock and roll and the Space Race and said this book was written so she could picture it all really clear as if she were there (and she wasn't even born to the seventies!)and had plenty else to interest her apart from just the nursing.

Well recommended!

HASH(0x987c10cc) out of 5 stars Excellent look back 30 May 2010
By Alexandra J. Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this account of nursing life in the 50s and 60s. She describes medical procedures and the grueling daily chores of patient care. Her description of nursing school was so detailed, I could easily imagine the feel of starched uniforms and chapped hands. I enjoyed reading of her excitement and dedication. I gobbled up the whole book in 24 hours. Her words remind me of sitting at my grandmother's kitchen table and listening to her childhood stories. I highly recommend.
