||This series examines a wide array of professions; each book goes behind the scenes and on the job with a professional in a particular field. These books provide a glimpse of some of the projects, challenges, and rewards of a job on a day-to-day basis. Describing 30 days in the life of a professional, this diary follows physical therapist Toni Lais as she experiences the highs and lows of this demanding yet profoundly rewarding profession. Each entry details the needs of her patients at a small hospital in Minnesota—from a middle-aged accident victim with a herniated disc to a high-school football player with a damaged shoulder—revealing the fast paced, hands-on world of physical therapy in a remarkable new light. Not only does this book offer an insider's knowledge and invaluable suggestions, but it also provides helpful resources for those seeking to enter the profession.
