A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back

A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back - Kevin Hazzard

Shortly after 9/11, journalist Kevin Hazzard was looking for a way to "make a difference," so he became an EMT.  A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back chronicles his 10 years providing emergency medical services in Atlanta. The story follows him from terrified greenhorn EMT to excellent seasoned paramedic to jaded, burned out veteran. 

 

This is the last in the run of memoirs that just didn't quite grab me, though I wonder how much of that has to do with external influences on the mood of the reader rather than the book itself (and no, I don't intend to get specific in an online forum).
