In this unforgettable, dramatic account of one man's experience as an EMT, Peter Canning relives the nerve-racking seconds that can mean the difference between a patient's death and survival, as Canning struggles to make the right call, dispense the right medication, or keep a patient's heart beating long enough to reach the hospital. As Canning tells his graphic, gripping war stories--of the lives he saved and lost; of the fear, the nightmares, and the constant adrenaline-pumping thrill of action--we come away with an unforgettable portrait of what it means to be a hero.

From the Paperback edition.

Very enjoyable

I liked it. On kobo for iPad some words came in skewed and I had to make sense of it. The book itself though is an interesting portrayal of Cannings time coming into and through EMS. Very true to life events as there isn't much deviation at all from what really happens on calls. Overall I enjoyed reading it quite a bit and am very likely to pick up his next book as well.
