I asked the EMS Manager staff to share the books they are reading (note many of the links below are Amazon affiliate links).

I am currently reading The Road to Damascus by John Ringo and Linda Evans and previous book was Emerald Sea by John Ringo (I think) both chosen mostly because they were in the Baen Free Library (which I just found out trying to find those titles has been pretty much gutted now), but he is a pretty good author or I wouldn’t have continued reading more of his (these are/were the last couple books I have of his out of 8 or so).

I’ve read a lot of books, I’m sure some of them have a medical theme at least, but none really come to mind. One of my favorites, Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein has a nurse as one of the main characters & part of the start of the book is set there, not sure if that’s close enough.

I am currently reading The Path Between the Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal, 1870-1914 by David McCullough. It’s so far a very interesting read and has lessons to be learned about clarity of vision for what you want to happen, relying on facts and calculations instead of guesswork and hopes, and the perseverance of people to make things happen. France was the first country to really set out to make a canal between the Pacific and Atlantic, but they never had reliable data on the geography of the area and vastly underestimated the effort it would take.

I really don’t read anything that is not on a computer screen anymore. I read a lot of stuff on the internet and listen to a good number of podcasts. My favorite podcasts right now are “Planet Money” and “Freakonomics”.

I haven’t read anything that stands out recently but I did listen to this podcast “how much is a firefighter worth“.  I enjoyed it because it relates to our business here and it relates to the business side of firefighting which interests me.
