    Winner of a record three National Book Awards: Non-Fiction Book of the Year, New Writer of the Year and Zoe Ball Book Club Book of the Year.

    The million-copy best seller. 

    Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life-and-death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids and the hospital parking meter earns more than you.

    Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.

    Sunday Times number-one best seller and Humour Book of the Year.

    This edition includes extra diary entries and a new afterword by the author.

    "Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable." (Stephen Fry)

    Fun and honest about beeing a doctor

    Beeing a medical doctor myself, I was exited about listening to this book. I found myself laughing and crying through the chapters. All the fun stories, the colourful personalities you meet in the hospital (both patients and staff), the fear of mistreating patients and all the extremely long and hard hours of work. It was so recognizable!

    I live in Norway and I guess we have both better salary and work hours here, but doctors still work more than any other employee I can think of.

    I started my internship married to a resident surgeon. My firstborn was only 1,5 years old at the time. I remember how I sometimes had to leave her with the nurses in the emergency departement because daycare closed and the shift of my husbond ended one hour after mine starded. I was so tired that I sometimes puked in the shower after beeing on dutey. I still feel that it is difficult resting on vacation; I feel that I have somehow lost the touch on how to relax. Still I love my job. It is the most interesting, rewarding and fullfilling job ever! :)

    Important and Funny

    Mostly it's a lot of funny stories about being a doctor (in the UK), but underneath the funny stuff are some important, deeper stories.

    Medicine may be the most admired career, and yet Adam Kay walked away from it. Why?
    That's what this book is about. It's about him coming to terms with giving up something he put so much into, and really took over his life, or perhaps ruined his life. It's a cautionary tale, too, about bad government policies that take a situation where physicians will do heroic work for pennies, and wrecking this valuable part of British society.

    I really loved this book. It made me want to have the author as a friend.

    Interesting enough to keep listening till the very end

    Very interesting book. Funny, informative and interesting... a twist of sad just for good measure.

    Hilarious and insightful

    This book gives insight into the horrors and humour behind medicine. I would recommend this to any healthcare professional struggling to get their family to understand what they go through on a dailu basis. Also helped me have true introspection into my job and how it's shaped me as a person.

    Great insight on the hardships of NHS

    Great insight on the hardships of NHS. Narrated by the author, which could be a little better.

    You'll laugh & you'll cry. Brilliant eye-opener.

    I listened to this on my hour release of exercise from lockdown. I laughed a lot at Kay's stories, but shared his frustrations and sadness along the way too. This gave me an insight into the inner workings of the NHS for staff and what we expect from them as patients. It's not good enough to rely on clever people to study medicine for the love of it; we have to support them in their work and to sustain the entire system for public benefit. hlHighly recommended.

    Narration is terrible

    This book is likely a great read, but I found it impossible to listen to because of the narration style. Returned it.

    "Painfully Funny"

    When Stephen Fry described this books as "painfully Funny", he hit the nail on the head.
    This book is just as likely to make you laugh out loud as it is to make you cry, when you start a new chapter.

    Absolutely loved it.

    (And as a side note: as someone who wants to start a career in medicin, this book made me feel more sure about my choice.)

    Wow

    Hilarious and realistic account of the challenges Doctors face. Quite shocking working conditions and a lack of care towards people in a profession who are expected to provide ultimate care. It also begs the question, what don’t people put up themselves?

    Eye opening!

    It was very interesting to get a behind the scenes look to what it’s like being a doctor for the nhs. There were bits that made me laugh, bits that made me feel disgusted or sad. This book is truly amazing and I couldn’t stop listening to it.

    Loved it!

    if you are a doctor, there is so much to relate to in this book. if you want to know about doctors' day to day life, this book is so realistic, most of the experiences actually sound familiar because I had similar ones or heard of them from other friends who also worked as doctors.
    Recommended.

    Sehr authentisch

    Das Hörbuch hat mir sehr gefallen, ich habe selber in einem Hospital in England 20 Jahre lang gearbeitet und kann nur bestätigen, dass die Geschichten einen sehr traurig wahren Hintergrund haben.

    Had to laugh out loud

    Loved the book and the way the author reads it. It’s so funny that I had to burst out laughing.
    On the other hand it’s quite sad to see how many hours the doctors have to put in.
