Emergency Laughter is a slightly odd (and I suspect slightly exaggerated) collection of stories from the author's experience as an EMT. The tone swings between morbid humour, outright stupidity, and some glimpses of compassion.

I quite enjoyed it, but it's not nearly as well-written or as interesting as some other books in the same genre. Sensitive readers might also be a little offended or upset by parts of it, because the author doesn't hold back in some of his language and opinions.

If you want to read something slightly silly, rather brash, and fairly entertaining, then give this book a shot. If you're expecting any real insight into life as an EMT though, then I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

Andreas Nøttveit Can you reccomend any boks in the same genre?

Peter I enjoyed "Confessions of a GP" and "Confessions of a Male Nurse". Both well worth a look, in my opinion.
