Publisher's Summary

From the people who brought you the bestselling Confessions of a GP. From stampeding nudes to inebriated teenagers, young nurse Michael Alexander never really knew what he was getting himself into. But now, sixteen years since he was first launched into his nursing career – as the only man in a gynaecology ward – he’s pretty much dealt with everything: Body parts that come off in his hands; Teenagers with phantom pregnancies; Doctors unable to tell the difference between their left and right; Violent drunks; Singing relatives; Sexism… and a whole lot of nudity. From the team that brought you the bestselling ‘Confessions of a GP’, comes a touching, shocking and frequently hilarious account of one man’s life in nursing.

Super entertaining

I started doing audible to listen to on my way to work and back home and I found myself not being able to put down the phone I would go to bed listening to it ! It's great it's really entertaining and I was very sad when it ended.

Too Much Inhaling!

Tried to persevered with this book as i do enjoy autobio's but couldn't get used to the narrator constantly inhaling to speak after every other word, so annoying and off putting i gave up in the end, would have been an enjoyable listen if it wasn't for his bla bla (inhale) bla bla (inhale) and on and on...........
