How many times have you left your house and suddenly started wondering if you switched off the iron or the gas cooker? The moment the thought crosses your mind, you go all red and your heart beat increases.
Working on the voice and breathing is a like looking inside yourself. It helps to discover and bring to light the hidden potential and to get rid of inhibitions. If this condition affects the voice organ, even people gifted with the most beautiful voice start to sound hoarse and croaky, or become unable to speak. The voice is a means of communicating with others and with yourself — words said out loud take on a different form than those that are only thought.

A piano virtuoso has his daily fingering practice, a dancer practices his steps and gestures, a good trainer practises his body and diction. Anyone who makes speeches and presentations should be audible, understandable and captivating. The first two requirements result from the right technique and speech clarity, the last one is the effect of an interesting interpretation and a pleasant voice. It is said that each one of us is a unique individual True, but what if you are just one more supplier in a crowd of competitors, all offering a very similar product or service?

Really hard to put down! I really enjoyed each story and especially related to her book as someone who is also a writer, hearing her own voice and reflections amongst those of strangers. A great read to de-stress although sad at times gives a good reminder that human nature is inherently one that grows stronger with relationships and wants everyone to live.

Sias has spent decades in the field and is not a "recovering" paramedic, but a very active one. Starting as a teenage volunteer, he's one of the few who was able to make peace with the demands of the profession. Many others fall by the wayside. This author was a paramedic who quit after a few years and her experience rai Sirens and flashing lights are not for everyone.
This author was a paramedic who quit after a few years and her experience raises some intriguing questions. Was she under additional stress because of being a young woman in a male-dominated field? Was she TOO empathetic to last in a job that requires some degree of detachment?
Do some employers demand too much or fail to provide adequate support? Or was she simply not the typical "adrenaline junkie" who gets hooked on the excitement of emergency calls and never lets go? Hers is a success story.
She trained as an EMT, then up-graded to paramedic status. When she decided to leave the field, she studied sociology and now teaches and specializes in researching the effects of stress on paramedics and how improvements can be made. It can be argued that her contributions have been as important than if she had continued to work as a paramedic. While her paramedic stories are fascinating, I was just as interested in the glimpses she gives of her childhood and family.
She was a "free range" kid before the term was coined and a single mother at seventeen. Life in her not-very-affluent rural community was so different from anything I have known and she writes simply but evocatively.

I hope she will write more. Not only is this a captivating and heart wrenching book to read for everyone, I believe it should be a must read for anyone who may be considering becoming a Paramedic or EMT. Each story tells the tale of real life calls in small town Northern California and the writer is taken into the homes of what a REAL call is like, not what you see on TV.

You can feel your senses awaken to the sights and smells of the small agriculture town as you read each chapter. The title really does the book justice as you will see by the end of the book how the stories stick with you long after you read them. I encourage every college teacher who is teaching young paramedics and EMTs to read this book, not to scare them away but to prepare them for what the real world of emergency response is like.
