    Very interesting book that kept me very interested throughout Most of the chapters made me cry The book is about the afflictions of a poor inner city documented by an ER doctor who grew up in the area and was fortunate enough to take a different pathThose afflicted are mainly poor black people who in many cases are suffering because of poor traditions and bad decisions which results in problems like drug abuse STD's obesity gang violence and so forth often leading to premature death rather than a long life With such a strong faith and religious background I felt constantly grateful for a belief system and life framework that has allowed me to avoid these kinds of suffering I wish I could really make a difference to these people and say There is a better way I wish that these people didn't have a life path that seems in some ways destined to heartache and failure I can see for a lot of people that such a life path seems almost unavoidable since we are in a sense wired by our life experiences and what we see Ultimately the opportunity for each person to choose allows some people to say I want better and escape the horrible things that entrap others in the communityI can't help but say that I'm thankful for a merciful God who perfectly understands every person and who can in the end compensate for injustice and whose love extends to every person The shame of this world and the evil that exists will one day be completely overcome I have to restrain myself from sharing of my Christian beliefs

    Inspiration comes in many forms and in this particular book it came in 3 #Determination #Dedication #Discipline This book helps to solidify how choices we make impact our lives whether they are positive or negative Dr Davis was able to pinpoint the pivotal moment in his life that helped to define his future and what he expected out of life and deserved out of life Dr Davis takes you on his own personal journeys of self reflection of his encounters with patients and the choices they made and the results This book intertwines personal experiences challenges and relevant issues such as crime poverty depression and drug abuse that plagues our communities and societies Davis could have easily removed himself from the environment like so many others do What is brilliant about Dr Davis is his actions are a true reflection and depiction of his words People who shine from within don't need a spotlight and this is why I have chosen to ensure all youth leaders I mentor receive a copy of Dr Davis’ book and weekly we conduct roundtable discussions in order to understand you are the choices you make This is an extraordinary and well written book that anyone of any age; going through anything can relate to Living and Dying in Brick City

    Part memoir part resource guide part political commentary and a lot of hope The author Dr Davis introduces struggles of an urban community through his work as an ER doctor in the area he grew up in Most chapters highlight some challenge within the community such as violence or drugs or health problems like obesity or smoking as patients come through the ER While describing a patient he is treating he reflects on the challenges that he and his community have faced with that same issue At the end of those chapters Dr Davis provides helpful information and resources pertaining to the issueHighlighting the similarities of his youth with the youth who die because of drugs and violence Dr Davis looks at his life wondering how he escaped the path that the others hadn't His caring about his community particularly the young people shaped his career and the path he has taken professionallyThis was an easy to read and compelling book and one that I recommendI received a copy of this book free from the publisher with no expectation of me to provide a review

    This is a great read or in my case listen for those who are interested in systemic public health care issues faced by those who reside in our inner city neighborhoods Through compassionate storytelling David provides a compelling case for Americans to take a closer look at the disparity in health care that is evident in our society Each chapter is dedicated to a different public health care issue Gun violence drug addiction HIV STDs and diabetes are just some of the serious issues he covers Each chapter ends with a list a resources which is not fun to listen to I started skipping it after the 3rd chapter However I believe that these lists would serve as a great resource for those who are reading the material This is NOT a dry book but filled with page after page of stories from his experiences working as an ER doctor as well as experiences from his childhood This is a great example of how authors can use storytelling as a way to help us understand and care about public issues better
