this book left me obstipated! 1/3rd pages are just one paragraph long stories--so leaving leaving much of the page blank. another 1/3rd is fuller crap--not stories! the stories are not even told by ER doctors, but just gossip poop , many told by anon, meaning urban myths! this book, coming out in 2007, i thought i was in for new material, stories from er doctors--like the real-life shows on cable these days. no! i read through in in 30 minutes!

The saying is "Don't judge a book by it's cover." If I had followed that rule, I would not have enjoyed the book nearly as much a I did. The graphics on the cover and its large-print vignettes mixed with factoids visual formatting is a dead give-away to the seriousness of the book.

This is one of the worst books I have read. It is merely a collection of short stories detailing the insanity that enters ERs daily. Most of these stories are from anonymous sources and resemble many medical urban myths. In addition, the stories lack any depth or writing skill. I read 3/4 of this book before I called it quits.

Bleah. Didn't care for this at all. After working on an ambulance and in an emergency room, I've heard most of these stories before. The bulk of them are urban legend. There are plenty of good books about the craziness of emergency medicine; this isn't one of them.

I thought this book was funny. Being a nursing student I can see how some people would make those charting mistakes. It was a light, humorous read that had me laughing out loud at times.

Funny collections of stories. Charting mistakes were hilarious. All other parts could have been left out
