Description

Winner of the Specsavers Popular Non-Fiction Book and New Writer of the Year 2018.  

Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave good-bye to your friends and relationships.... 

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor. 

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor 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 by turns, these diaries are everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn't – about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar. 

Read by the author, this audiobook contains exclusive extra features, including an interview with the author by comedian and author Mark Watson and extra diary entries not featured in the book.

Critiques

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

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.

Hilarious insight into the life of a junior doctor

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Couldn't recommend this book more highly, a must read for any soon-to-be or current medic.
Hilarious bite sized anecdotes from the under appreciated life of a junior doctor.

Any additional comments?

Would recommend this book 100% to anyone vaguely interested in medicine or the current state of the NHS.

Whine-fest.

I was expecting a little more of a story to be spun out of this, not literally a series of diary entries of a relentlessly whining and sarcastic tone.
