Review:

"Critical Care is a gift from an English-teacher-turned-nurse who writes from a deeply human context about her first year in a hospital oncology ward...A book of stirring stories about how we live, care for the sick and die."--Richard M. Cohen, author of Blindsided and Strong at the Broken Places

"A must read for anyone who wants to understand healthcare. This extraordinary book will open your eyes to the reality of nursing. If you or your loved one ends up in the hospital, you'll wish you had someone like Nurse Brown at your side."--Elizabeth Cohen, MPH, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent

"Theresa Brown's arresting account of life on the wards offers palpable testimony that nurses are first responders and primary healers in our times of crises."--Mehmet Oz, MD, author of YOU: The Owner's Manual health series

"A beautifully written account of a nurse's first year on the wards, a medical memoir that combines lyricism and compassion with searing honesty and well-timed laugh-out-loud wit...I loved this book."--Pauline Chen, author of Final Exam

"Brown shows us what it means to be a nurse and helps us understand that nurses need as much intensive care as their patients. Sometimes more!"--Suzanne Gordon, author of Nursing Against the Odds
