"For those who know Cook County Hospital or trained there as I did, this book will rekindle emotions from those times. I can honestly say that this book is a phenomenal, funny yet poignant read. It's a 'must read' for anyone interested in Chicago institutions and legends in medicine." --George Bakris, MD, FASN, FAHA, Professor of Medicine, University of Chicago Medicine
"The Cook County Hospital intensive care unit was the focal point whereupon Chicagoans in the inner city either survived or succumbed to the rigors of urban life. Using a combination of clinical anecdotes from all phases of his medical career and historical notes, Dr. Franklin resuscitates the Cook County ICU, bringing it back to life for the reader. A must read for anyone interested in the historical landscape of Chicago critical care." --Jerrold B. Leikin, MD
"[a] deeply humanist collection." --Publishers Weekly
"For readers who enjoy true-medicine stories, this is one of those reward-yourself kinds of books filled with anecdotes you'll eat up. It's compelling, comic, and constantly addicting so, for you, missing Cook County ICU would be very wrong." --The Bookworm Sez
