    A thousand naked strangers

    Great book. Truly entertaining. A realistic view of EMS and the people that work tirelessly to save lives.

    humor those in the field can appreciate

    "Death cracks inside jokes that only we emergency workers with our practical knowledge of the postmortem human will ever laugh at." In A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back, former Atlanta paramedic Kevin Hazzard shares his memories of entering the medical emergency field, a sample of his ten years of experiences in the field, and how he knew it was time for him to move on. The book's dark humor and matter-of-fact style will make a lot of sense to many people already in the high-stress helping industry and may come off as surprisingly nonchalant and too frank for others. When you deal with life and death crises day after day and come across scenes that even Stephen King's imagination can't conjure up, you have to create some emotional distance if you're going to survive the field. If you are ever in the situation to require emergency assistance from an EMT, paramedic, fireman, police officer, etc. and they have poor bedside manner, cut them a break. Traditional customer service does not always apply to these folks when the bottom line is saving lives. Their focus is elsewhere as it should be. These folks have seen it all and, based on this medical memoir, it's far from pretty. Yet they continue. Next time you bake a batch of cookies, set a few aside and go show some appreciation.
