Join Dr. Lesslie for an Amazing Journey! Jan 20, 2010
Dr. Lesslie chronicles his poignant journey as a veteran emergency department physician in this beautifully-written collection of true stories. He will make you laugh and he will make you cry as he draws you into his world. I especially like the insight Dr. Lesslie offers into the realities and challenges of working in a hospital emergency department. He accomplishes this with a light heart and without a hint of self-pity. He chose this very stressful career path for all the right reasons - he knew he could make a difference. Well done! I can't wait for the release of Angels on Call!

Amazingly good heartfelt book about the human condition Nov 21, 2009
Dr. Lesslie's Angels in the ER: Inspiring True Stories from an Emergency Room doctor will make you both laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, as you see through his eyes an honest appraisal of life in the ER. As the good doctor comments, the ER is where we are all put on an even keel. Perhaps not in those exact words but he does write about how bankers and common folks are both brought to the same level of circumstance as all can be seen in their barest glory.
Lesslie also writes about the "untouchables" the people who society happens to "forget" except for the angels in the ER.
Finally, Lesslie gives several examples of angels, perhaps the ones that are invisible, but angels all the same.
For Christians, each chapter usually starts with a Biblical verse illustrating the upcoming story. His book would make an excellent Christmas present.
