ABOUT THE BOOK: It is no secret that the healthcare system in America is in many ways flawed. What we spend seems to have little to do with the outcome. Through his reflective and sometimes humorous stories, author Kenny Jackson, RN, imparts the life lessons and spiritual insight he has gained from a long-time career in healthcare and nursing. This very personal account from a healthcare "insider" stirs the emotions and challenges readers to Buck Up and hold all aspects of the healthcare system accountable while, at the same time, offers a gentle reminder that sometimes we have to simply Take It-take what life gives us and learn to find in it those things that bring us pleasure and reward. ---- ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kenny Jackson grew up working in his father's pharmacy.
