This review is from: The Lie (Hardcover)
One of those books that lingers with you long after you have finished it, where you care about and miss the characters and no other book quite hits the mark till the effect slowly wears off.

My physiotherapist helped me place them carefully, but unfortunately these didn't work at all for me. However, the reviews seem to indicate that they have worked for others.

1.0 out of 5 stars The overall look of the label is good, but these are very overpriced, 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The edge of the label is very sharp and the labels keep flying off the hook in the wind. The overall look of the label is good, but these are very overpriced. There were fewer labels than spikes, so had to order a separate pack. The order took a long time to arrive and customer service was non-existant, when I tried to follow this up.

2.0 out of 5 stars deadly boring story with stunning illustrations, 24 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this graphic anti-novel left me feeling disappointed and disorientated. For me. the story is as shallow as a wafer and as dense as mud: quite an achievement! What a shame: the illustrations explode with life and the line drawings are compelling: they go some way to compensate for a wasted hour trying to understand what others have praized so highly.


The Exceptional Nurse: Tales from the trenches of truly resilient nurses working with disabilities
The Exceptional Nurse: Tales from the trenches of truly resilient nurses working with disabilities
Price: £4.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational stories about nurses with disabilities, 6 Sept. 2014
This book contains individual chapters written by nurses with a wide range of disabilities: their stories are testimony to the exceptional courage, flexibility and resilience they demonstrate whilst practising their chosen vocation. They bring these qualities to the workplace, as well as serving as role models and advocates to other students, patients, helpers and educators. For example, one nurse with diabetes brings a special ‘willingness to listen to patients talk about being sick, being hospitalised, frightened and powerless, and vulnerable.’

You will also find practical information on how to navigate ‘the system’ in order for reasonable adjustments be made and support accessed from a wide number of sources. A British readership would not be able to benefit from this information, as it is naturally culturally, linguistically and legally biased towards an American audience. For this reason only I would afford the book 4 stars, and would warmly welcome a similar publication geared in tone and content to readers in the United Kingdom.

In sum, this innovative and unique book is well written, clearly structured, extensively researched and moving. As such, it should be set reading in medical education.’
