Eric Manheimer did an awesome job of not only writing the book but also narrating it. I have been involved in Hospital healthcare for over 30 years and understand his joys and his frustrations.
Eric was able to tell his story and the story of his patients in such a way that it made you feel like you were right there at the bedside with him. When describing patient's conditions and procedures, he did it in a way that the lay person could understand exactly what he was talking about, yet he didn't "dumb it down" so much that the professional was bored. Each patient was a story by itself, which kept the book interesting. Also, by describing his life at Bellevue, he was able to show the decline in Healthcare in the US over the past 30 years without being preachy about it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading non-fiction true life medical stories.
