My Review: A well done graphic memoir! Now you may think this is going to be s fun book about a career in nursing. But its not exactly like that. Joel writes what goes down and give you some reality into the nursing world. Speaks his mind and there are the few laughter moments.
I liked Joel's story. It is unique and truthful. He tells you the story about going into nursing and hes just an overall normal guy living his life, who just happens to do cartoon work and acting on the side.
Now I know some people in this field and this is something I think they just had to read. Its like a perfect guide with some humor thrown in. You get to know about everything pretty much. From working in the field, being a worker compared to a patient, and just how busy it can really be. The overall story is great, the author is easily likable, and its just one of those books that you were glad to have read.
