    This book gave short and very relevant stories and really helpful information to all types of first responders. I put it on our library shelf and it's been going out on loan.

    It has been argued that medicine, and by extension paramedicine, is both an art and a science.

Seen from this perspective, Mike Rubin's excellent book delves into all aspects of prehospital care delivery.
