Listening really brought the story to life. Having lived in El Barrio (NYC) for many years I was able to relate to many of her experiences.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor. She did it against all odds. She really made it to the top.
All of it. Her ability to capture the nuiances of the speech was fabulous.
Parts of it made me laugh and parts made me cry. When she spoke of her cousin and his lost talent both intellecually and musically it was very sad.
I will listen to this book over and over again. It is so inspirational. Will also recommend it to all.
Thought provoking and in many instances sad.
The realism, the human touch as well as the inclusion of the nurses.
It was difficult to single out one character since Mr.Hite was so excellent. I guess it would have to be Mr.Tait and his daughter. After receiving the results of his x ray his concern was more for his daughter than himself.
Narration by Mr. Hite was so realistic.
Since I am an RN the inclusion of the nurses in this book is almost unheard of by most MD writers. Also coming from a very similar background it was very easy for me to relate to many of the characters and situations.
Dr.Davis is a rare breed on so many levels. I have read his other collaborations and given so many copies to the young men in my church. May he continue to work and share the much needed knowledge in the ER. He probably sees as many patients as the PCP since patients tend to go where they feel comfortable. Even many of those with medical coverage.
