I’m a fresh paramedic. I did my internship with Chris Adams a few months back. I can tell you from my private experience that what these guys teach Is super beneficial to the development of a first responder. This book is all about the hero attributes and the professionalism it takes to be a amazing paramedic. It has greatly helped me to understand that being a paramedic is far beyond EKG interpretation and pharmacology.... This is a amazing read and I would recommend this book to anyone in the EMS field, regardless of your certification level or years of experience.
These guys are top notch in the field of EMS and provide amazing prospective, insight and understanding. This is an perfect read and I highly reccomended for anyone looking to enhance their emergency medicine career.
This book is a must read for any professional paramedic. This book covers everything that a paramedic needs in order to communicate and create decisions. The info in this book needs to be taught in Paramedic courses instead of the lip service we pay to understanding how to communicate and create effective e amount of tangible info contained in this book is amazing. There is no fluff and no battle stories, just quality info that flows well. This is a book a Paramedic can read in a weekend and completely change how they feel about their profession.Understanding leadership takes work and this book is a amazing first step in learning how to be a leader. If you wish to create a difference in your patient's lives, your career, and this profession this book is worth every penny.
I have worked closely with both Sam and Chris and they practice what they preach. They are knowledgeable and know truly how to be decisive on each and every call. I was lucky enough to have them both as a preceptor and the book “Life or Death matters” pushes every concept they taught me. Amazing book. Amazing humans. Amazing Fire Medics.
No matter where you are in your career as a first responder, EMT, firefighter, paramedic, this is the book to read to inspire you to be the best you can be...thinking about being a preceptor, already a preceptor, read this book. It will begin you on the path to being the best person and first responder you can be. I’m not saying it will be easy, but the info and thought processes contained within will have you considering how to improve and seek excellence daily. It will inspire you no matter what scene you are in...it did for me after nearly 17 years in EMS and 11 years as a full-time medic.
I hate to write such a scathing review in a field where knowledge and growth benefit all. Yet better to not have a book like this on the shelf when there are so a lot of rich with wisdom and so succinctly is is so poorly written that it is shy of unreadable. Clearly not professionally proofread. From the table of contents, title, and subtitle, the actual content felt like a bait and watered down with repetition, vagueness, weak sentence structure, heavy overuse of prepositional phrases, it reads like a 9th-grade book report. Guessing they were shooting for a certain number of pages and kept repeating until fluffed to that goal. The entire book could have been a magazine ys, GREAT SUBJECT. Invest in a professional proofreader or ghostwriter and come out with a revision. The book is sorely needed. You just published it before it was the meantime, watch "Curbside Manner" from the Fire Character Program for an effective alternative.
As a paramedic and a paramedic preceptor this book re-energized me to become better in every aspect of my profession. Lays out a blueprint for how to truly become a professional paramedic and the importance of passing that knowledge on to students we precept.
I purchased this book with amazing enthusiasm because, like the authors, I feel there is no grey zone in prehospital medicine. What I found was a book written as if the authors had to create a 100,000 word minimum. With such amazing prose as “Try to understand where your patient is coming from and test to understand and be empathetic to their situation. You must be sensitive to the situations that your patients search themselves in. Even though you might not have an emotional stake in a given situation, you have to be sensitive to it.” The authors simply repeat themselves over and over, like we all did in high school when we had to create 2 pages of material stretch to 5. The thesis of the book is excellent, it’s just 300 pages too long.
I’ve read this twice now and can say that it is a must read for any person that considers themselves a first responder. I don’t care if you’re brand new, 20 year veteran, personal EMS provider, fire medic, anything....read it. It is a gut check that everyone needs. Chris and Sam practice what they preach and I’m impressed by how they were able to obtain these thoughts on paper. It is imperative you read this. Thanks guys!

This book is special in our field and has the strength of multiple authors who emphasize differing emphases. I really want that more major medical meetings would contain these perspectives. Physicians sometimes succeed in academic medicine because they are so brilliant but more often than not, success comes from negotiating the pathway up the ladder. This ladder should not be as invisible and the route upwards should not be as lonely and solitary as if often is. This
This textbook is quickly being adopted by occupational therapy programs. Outside of Doody's review service, this textbook also keep a very positive book review . It can be reviewed at the following citation:Shadle, C. (2017). Professionalism Across Occupational Therapy Practice (2017). Occupational Therapy in Health Care, 31(4), 382-383. DOI: 10.1080/07380577.2017.1360540
Kindle version, as others said pictures are not on the same page where referenced to, one can go easily 10 pages before hitting the picture. There are NOT all that a lot of pictures, she gives five examples of a wrinkle in writing but only one picture ( not one picture per each wrinkle position, simply one picture for one position and leaves you to use your imagination for the position of remaining wrinkles). Don’t expect to know it all from reading this book, ain’t going to happen. Maybe in her class that costs about 8k, but I cannot vouch for that either. this book barely touches the surface of face reading. Overpriced too
I found this book a very nice description of the principles and practices of the tongue diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. It also provides a amazing example on how to describe in decent English the concepts and terms in Chinese Medicine. I'm not a medical scientist but part of my research is similar with Chinese Medicine. I found this book a amazing reference, especially when I need write about Chinese Medicine in English in the future.
This is an invaluable and concise manual on proper patent selection, identification of the issue (most necessary !), and appropriate injection technique for aesthetic facial enhancements. As a board certified plastic surgeon, I've seen multiple examples of not good injections, not good planning, and not good patient selection. Weekend courses and cookbook instructions for facial fillers are seductive for the inexperienced injector, but often lead to undesirable results. This book teaches how to "see" the issue and correct the deficiency. Warning signs are well elucidated. A lot of necessary "pearls" are located though out the book. I've read multiple books, articles and lectures over a lot of years concerning nonsurgical facial enhancement. This book is one of the best.
I have wanted to obtain the book, "Face Reading in Chinese Medicine," since seeing Dr. Lillian Bridges on the Dr. Oz Show. It is fascinating of how Chinese doctors could tell a lot about their patients by looking at their face. This face reading way was particularly used to avoid touching female patients, except for their extremities, as it was deemed inappropriate to do so. I am still reading the book and plan on re-reading it several times. I hold it on my coffee table because it is quite a conversation starter with guests.
