A psychiatric emergency team member on a night shift in LA - not a job I'd wish on anyone but my worst enemy - but somehow it works for me. I try not to think too much about what that says about me, and to do the job with heart and brains. This book is made up of episodes...various night shifts over the years. They tell a story of the true meaning of "sanity" in the universe, and the true nature of life in the wasteland they call "the center of the world". The comical mingles with the tragic. Like the man said, the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Not quite what I expected...
Nope, I wouldn't listen to Mister 5150 again because I don't typically listen to many books more than once. It was an interesting listen, but isn't one that I need to listen to again.
I likely would only recommend Mister 5150 to my friends that aren't offended by language (there's quite a bit of profanity, which doesn't bother me, but may offend some) and are more heavily into drugs. This story was less about 5150s and more so about the author and didn't touch much on the hospital/mental health aspect but more on his own drug use activities. It definitely wasn't want I had expected TBH. I was expecting more of his dealings with the 5150 cases that he dealt with in the hospital.
I enjoyed Uncle Bob. He just seemed like a fun guy and I appreciated his and Mister 5150's long history together. It's unfortunate that they had to reconnect under the circumstances that they did.
I honestly have no idea...

Great, hilarious stories told by someone who knows how to tell them! Several times, I couldn't help but bust out in laughter.
This is very hard to say. These are one episode after another and they are all the memorable.
I absolutely loved when he was talking about Uncle Bob but then again, I loved every episode. This was so good and amusing I started it over immediately and listened to it again. I never do that!
Jonathan Jaye is a great storyteller who I could listen to all day. He knows how to put words together (including a lot of profanity) to put the best pictures in my head! I love anything I have listened to from him and always find myself laughing out loud while listening with my earbuds in, looking like a crazy person myself!
