Summary
Humanitarian doctor and activist James Maskalyk, draws upon his experience treating patients in emergency rooms around the world. Dr. Maskalyk argues that although the cultures, resources and medical challenges of each hospital differ, they are linked indelibly by the ground floor: the location of their emergency rooms. It is here that Dr. Maskalyk witnesses the story of "human aliveness"--our mourning and laughter, tragedies and hopes, the frailty of being and the resilience of the human spirit. And it is here too that he confronts his fears and doubts and questions what it is to be a doctor. More than just an emergency doctor's memoir or travelogue, the book is a meditation on health, sickness and the wonder of human life
