Reviews

"Tilda Shalof's A Nurse's Story is the first time the work of nurses has been documented in print in Canada in such an honest, no-holds-barred account. . . . Shalof has seen it all, and writes about it, too."
-The Calgary Herald

"But her book isn't a doom-and-gloom account of overworked nurses. Interspersed with tales of tragedy are accounts of the funny, often bizarre events that transpire on an ICU."
Canadian Press "A compelling book laced with humour."
-Times & Transcript "There are genuinely heart-rending, disturbing and thought-provoking stories to be found in the pages of A Nurse's Story. If this book doesn't give you pause, you're made of stone."
-Edmonton Journal "In a post-SARS world where nurses are finally being recognized for the heroes they always were, A Nurse's Story is the best-seller no one can put down."
-Montreal Gazette "This is a difficult book. Its content is difficult. Its tone is difficult. But it is also difficult to put down, so compelling and beautifully written are these stores.... Shalof's stories are naked and vulnerable. Nothing is held back in her portrayals of her most memorable experiences from the early '80s to the SARS crisis.... Shalof's colleagues point out during one of their ongoing discussions about the value of their work, that eventually everyone needs a nurse. And for that reason alone, A Nurse's Story would worth reading, in order to understand where it is most of us will end up sooner or later, what it is that might be visited upon us and just who it is that will be looking after us.... A Nurse's Story helps us understand where it is most of us will end up sooner or later."
-Winnipeg Free Press "Readers may approach this book with the hope of reading dramatic tales such as those seen on television shows such as "ER." While such readers are not likely to be disappointed, they are likely to discover more than they had hoped.... By turns sad, funny and touching, the author has done an admirable job of providing an insightful look into the real world of an ICU."
-Brandon This Week "A cracking good read.... Despite the overt moralizing, this is undoubtedly a strong memoir. I hope it's not the only story Shalof has to tell."
-Quill & Quire
