Product description


The Night Shift has many satisfactions. It offers a great deal to both the lay public and those inside the health professions who continue to benefit from Goldman’s honesty and curiosity.” (The Globe and Mail)

“A wonderfully frank, highly informative and, most importantly, deeply humane exploration of one of medicine’s most challenging disciplines—emergency medicine.” (Dr. Vincent Lam, author of the Giller Prize-winning Bloodletting and Other Cures)

“A jaw-dropping look at the remarkable world of emergency medicine. It’s sometimes shocking, sometimes heartbreaking, but always, always uplifting.” (Terry O’Reilly, host of CBC Radio’s The Age of Persuasion and author of This I Know)

“A wise and honest book that is also a very good read.” (Dr. Robert Buckman)
