Description

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.

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.

Swearing and blasphemy unnecessary!

Interesting stories but due not appreciate the amount of swearing and blasphemy in this book and it does not add any value to the stories I will not order anymore of the author’s books

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.

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.
