If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. This review of A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic's Wild Ride to the Edge and Back, by Kevin Hazzard, provides a chapter by chapter detailed summary followed by an analysis and critique of the strengths and weaknesses of the book. The main theme explored in the book is how working as an EMT and paramedic has changed the author's worldview. His description of the type of person he was before joining the EMS is vastly different from who he is now as he is recollecting this story. This is due in large part, he explains, to the sheer madness of the job and its ability to take the shocking and gruesome scenes they encounter on a daily basis and turn them into what is expected every time the EMS begin their shift. The purpose of this book is a way for the author to not just recollect some of the strange and wild things he has seen and experienced, but rather make sense of them and understand how the madness has changed his life. Using anecdotes from nearly a decade with EMS, the author makes the case that to be an EMT or paramedic; a person must learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Further, he provides many examples and stories that prove that the most successful and long running paramedics are not necessarily the ones who are the toughest or bravest, but are instead the craziest. Kevin Hazzard is a former paramedic based out of Atlanta, Georgia. His previous careers include reporter, journalist, and paperboy. He currently writes for television and likes in Hermosa Beach, California with his wife and two children. Available on PC, Mac, iphone, android, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2016 All Rights Reserved
