A fantastic read, and one that I've revisited a few times over the last couple of years. Definitely a book for any prospective vet student (like myself). It's good to hear an account from an underdog, as getting in to vet school and coping thereafter isn't always quite as simple as all that.
Personally, in contrast to another reviewer, I enjoyed the use of technical terms, but I'm not a believer in dumbing down; what's wrong with having to Google a few things in order to broaden your understanding? Steve did a very good job of using such words in moderation, and I think any layperson would be capable of getting the gist where they were applied, even if they were adverse to picking up a dictionary.
An absolute steal at the current 2nd hand prices here on Amazon, well worth it. I'll be very sad if this has gone out of print.
