About the book

image4.4/5.0

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.

Hilarious read! Read it over two days. A whirlwind of tales. It must be rememebered that a particular type of doctors decides to write a book though...

So good, read it all in one sitting on a plane from U.K. to Chicago. Fascinating insight into the life of a doctor in the U.K., the conditions they are expected to work in and the funny stories only doctors would be exposed to.

So funny! Had me laughing out loud on the tube. Quite graphic descriptions at times that can come as a shock- however in context, very funny!
