  • Florence Nightingale was a healer, a comforter, and a nurturer But like all of us, she had a dark side Because of her mystique and her charisma she always got what she wanted Seldom, did anyone really know her They were drawn to her They had to be with her They admired her At least one man literally worked himself to death for her But they did not really know her.Florence Nightingale was a healer, a comforter, and a nurturer But like all of us, she had a dark side Because of her mystique and her charisma she always got what she wanted Seldom, did anyone really know her They were drawn to her They had to be with her They admired her At least one man literally worked himself to death for her But they did not really know her There is no doubt she was a force with which one had to attend Denial of her passion and abilities generally led only to personal devastation Now you can discover the darker side of Florence Nightingale.

    It is hard to find biographies that bring the subject to life. This is one of those few.

    Nightingale, the bottom line can be read in a brief time.Considering that I knew next to nothing about Florence Nightingale (and that I work in nursing)This is an important book. Nursing School makes reference to her as well as other innovators, of the field but really don't go into depth on the history. This book answers those questions.

    Often my favorite reading is in the genre of biography or auto biography. This is a book about one of those people who made a significant difference in the world. The author presented her in a light that is usually not considered by those of us who think of Florence Nightingale as the ultimate healer. I was surprised by those negative characteristics that sometimes dominated her behavior and yet I admired her commitment, dedication, and sacrifice to what she held dear. Well worth reading.

    Direct, concise, and unembellished, this quick-read biography of Florence Nightingale was wonderful. Her merciful work in Scutari was a marvel, of course, but equally fascinating was the account of the obsessive drive that propelled her through decades and cost her health and the lives of her associates. She really was a phenomenal woman.
