  • Bookread2day
    Read in hardback. This is my first medical true book that I have. Molly Case explains in detail finding her granny dead and five years later she saw her second dead body on her first ward, on her first morning within her first hour of nurse training. I too see my first dead body when I was serving t...
  • Book Ichor
    Molly deftly describes and humanises nursing. Personal and professional stories interweave, culminating in heart-wrenching moments, and sometimes funny ones too. There are moments of pure poetry and yet also a truthful, plain quality to the writing as she does not shy away from the realities of nurs...

    “a still patient whose chest is silent is far more frightening than any other sound.”Part memoir, part science; the connection between nurse and patient, the empathy, the kindness, the moments shared is what it means to be a nurse - this book was a pleasure to read.As well as sharing her p...

    3.5 rounded downA solid addition to the medical memoir sub-genre, How to Treat People offers a slightly different perspective compared to the previous books I've read in this genre - that of a nurse. What I took away from this was that nurses have a slightly different relationship with patients than...
  • Laura
    A short and sweet nursing memoir that is peppered with stories from the frontline and a little history and philosophy of nursing throughout the ages. I enjoyed this book, although the author is still fairly newly qualified, she writes with a poetic tone and this is what makes it so readable. The aut...
  • Rebecca
    I read the first 77 pages. Her writing about her nursing training and the patients she encountered is pleasant enough, but I found the structure (Airway – Breathing – Circulation – Disability – Exposure) clichéd and too similar to the Aoife Abbey book I DNFed earlier in the ye...
