Reviews

What a fabulous book! Honest, insightful and invaluable to all in this profession. I will be strongly recommending this great book to my students and the wider paramedic community. Really well done!Lisa Holmes, Lecturer in Paramedicine, Edith Cowan UniversityAs a former paramedic (and one who misses the job everyday) I can attest to the brilliance stapled to the pages of this book! The prose within this book has a conversational tone to it that makes you feel as though you're sitting in the front of the rig, having one of those meaningful conversations with your most trusted partner. The fact that Tammie can articulate this way is a true testament to her brilliance and understanding of the profession.Matthew Heneghan, Author of "A Medic's Mind"I'm a relatively new ambulance officer and absolutely related to all of the scenarios as they were immersive and captivating. This book felt inclusive, removing gender and age etc, allowing me to place myself into each situation described, giving cause to reflect upon my own practice. It feels like a friendly companion to read and, every time I pick it up, I feel a desire to become the best paramedic I can be.Jenn, Ambulance OfficerThis was a thoroughly enjoyable book that reminded me of myself at many stages throughout my career. It brought to mind that despite my best intentions to uphold a standard, there have been times where the bad the ugly have crept in. I am grateful to have been reminded of it. It would be a good book for junior paramedics to read as they reach the senior stage of their training, and then again every few years or so throughout their careers. I have been in this line of work for nearly thirty years and it brought a lot to mind for me to think about.Trevor, Station ManagerThe "we" tone of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Paramedic allows the reader to feel like we're all in this together and working towards the same goal. Throughout reading, I could think of at least a dozen people I'd love to give the book to, myself included. This will be such a great resource for students and preceptors, really useful.Anna, Paramedic PreceptorThis book has really made me reflect on my own practice, as well as that of others. It certainly has me thinking about the type of paramedic I want to be, and seen to be by my colleagues and the general public. The use of storytelling and the way in which the book has been set up is fantastic, making it easy to read. You never know, it may promote a change in some paramedic related bad and ugly behaviours, which is really positive.Jo, Paramedic
