    BooYah !!!😊Loved.This.Book. I was immediately mesmerized by the Graffiti art on the side of the rig.Was that his personal rig ? Or one that was parked & made into a kind of Big Easy legend ? Doesn't matter. Is badass. That Graffiti art said it all. This is the second EMT/Medic autobiography I've read and I gotta say, this one ruled. The author takes readers on a wild ride. Some of the calls he describes are unbelievably horrific, so much so that I couldn't believe they happened i.e it was embellishment. But thinking about it, IDK, emergency medicine by nature defies all convention. They see the best and the worst.B.J Schneider is an extremely likable storyteller. Pretty riveting. I can see this made for T.V but I almost don't trust a director to do it justice.

    Great DetailThis book gave great examples of what a paramedic has to has to go through. Very interesting but some show how disgusting and irresponsible people can be.

    Best adventure everI absolutely loved reading these stories. I didn't expect them all to be just stories of calls but god did I love them, there really wasn't a call I didn't enjoy reading about. And this passed the time as I am just sitting around doing nothing in my ambulance

    Laughed out loud Gagged a couple times too. Genuinely enjoyed this book. It could use a little more love from a good copy-editor, but the stories are well told and highly entertaining.

    Every word is true (almost)Having spent time in New Orleans I can attest to some of the more violent going ons in the French Quarter, but the tales of just plain stupid partners are overblown. No one would survive as an EMT being that stupid.

    Not the emotional roller coaster I expected; but a pretty good, sometimes humorous, read. Needs some editing for grammar, missing words, and quite a few incorrect words; but that was not too distracting.

    A must read!Never a dull story in this book. The author can surely add "gifted writer" to his already impressive list of professional accomplishments. I laughed almost continuously throughout the book and didn't stop reading until I finished it.

    Good ReadThis books makes you see how being an EMS has it's up and downs. It shows how much humanity and care goes in each and everything. Even while playing pranks on each other, they all work together to get things accomplished. Now on to book #2.

    Absolutely spellbindingThis book brings it home. As an ER nurse for many years I have worked with medics forever. They are our front line and our eyes and ears. This book puts it all out there. The fun, the sorrow, the sheer stupidity and the passion. Great read.

    Interesting storyI was kept interested with the contents of this book, but the mechanics are very poor. Many misspelled words and improper grammer. Definitely needs editing.

    Medics in New OrleansI'm a RN in Shreveport. I retired from LSU med center. I worked primarily L+D and acute hemodialysis. We helped train firemen in the labor unit. We loved teaching them and hearing their stories. I enjoyed every story in your book ! What a fascinating career!
