A beautifully written insight into the stresses, strains and successes of working for the London Ambulance service. Is there anyone who hasn't wondered about the state of the occupant of an ambulance, screaming along with its sirens on and blue lights flashing? Have you? And have you wondered about the other people inside the ambulance, maybe fighting to save the patient's life? Or have you considered that the ambulance may be another 'maternataxi' ordered by a woman who can't be bothered to book a real cab and who then complains she can't smoke on the way to hospital? And that the medical technician inside might just be desperate to get back home from a busy shift, to have a cup of tea and catch up with his blog? Meet Tom Reynolds. Tom is an Emergency Medical Technician who works for the London Ambulance Service in East London. He has kept a blog of his daily working life since 2003 and his award-winning writing is, by turn, moving, cynical, funny, heart-rending and compassionate. It is never less than compelling.From the tragic to the hilarious, from the heartwarming to the terrifying, the stories Tom tells give a fascinating - and at times alarming - picture of life in inner-city Britain, and the people who are paid to mop up after it.

I brought this book through reccomendation (like most best books). I brought it to understand the life of a paramedic as a wise friend said
"If you really want this to be your carrear you need to read this book. It shows you the truth and if you think you can stomach it then you'll be fine." and this book has made me want the carrear even more; for the highs and even the lows. It tells you the way it is. I recommend it to anyone! Happy Reading! x

 Excellent!

As a person who has been fascinated by medicine for some time, this book was an excellent choice. I laughed from cover to cover, and i'm only 12. My Advice: read it!

 Pure Brilliance!

This book really shows what being on the front line in the East End every day is like! As a volunteer, I dont always see that much of this when I am out but, I know how the author feels, especially when he is faced with a different patient.

 Brilliant!!!!!!!!!

As someone who works on a frontline ambulance i can tell you that hand on heart this is what the job is really like. After a while in the job we all start to feel and act like this. This book will make you laugh from cover to cover, thats a promise.

 Great!!!!!!!!!!!

A very good book, that talks about the different cases a paramedic has come across. Witty, and humorous, this book is excellent.
