Patients bring many bits and pieces to their doctors' visits. Health issues. Things they've noticed. Worries about specific symptoms. Concerns that need reassurance. They also bring their personal stories though in the present high-tech assessment of patients' health, these are easily missed, and we are all the less for that loss today. Yesterday's doctors had the time to visit with their patients. We took delight in hearing what had been special in our patients' lives. We learned about the particular events that made some patients so different from any others, made them what they are. Some intrigued us. Some charmed us. Some amused us. Some worried us. And some scared the pants off us. None bored us. Such personal knowledge of our patients helped to make us see them as individuals. Indeed, patients might be surprised to find how much we recall of those times they came to see us. This book, a collection of stories from patients' lives, may show we remember them fondly.

A former paramedic’s visceral, poignant, and mordantly funny account of a decade spent on Atlanta’s mean streets saving lives and connecting with the drama and occasional beauty that lies inside catastrophe. In the aftermath of 9/11 Kevin Hazzard felt that something was missing from his life—his days were too safe, too routine. A failed salesman turned local reporter, he wanted to test himself, see how he might respond to pressure and danger. He signed up for emergency medical training and became, at age twenty-six, a newly minted EMT running calls in the worst sections of Atlanta. His life entered a different realm—one of blood, violence, and amazing grace. Thoroughly intimidated at first and frequently terrified, he experienced on a nightly basis the adrenaline rush of walking into chaos. But in his downtime, Kevin reflected on how people’s facades drop away when catastrophe strikes. As his hours on the job piled up, he realized he was beginning to see into the truth of things. There is no pretense five beats into a chest compression, or in an alley next to a crack den, or on a dimly lit highway where cars have collided. Eventually, what had at first seemed impossible happened: Kevin acquired mastery. And in the process he was able to discern the professional differences between his freewheeling peers, what marked each—as he termed them—as “a tourist,” “true believer,” or “killer.” Combining indelible scenes that remind us of life’s fragile beauty with laugh-out-loud moments that keep us smiling through the worst, A Thousand Naked Strangers is an absorbing read about one man’s journey of self-discovery—a trip that also teaches us about ourselves.
