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.
Very funny, honest & absolutely brilliant.
Book of 2017 for me….
Didn’t expect much, but written with a great dry humor and delivered by the author with the skill of a seasoned standup. Funny, sad and intriguing in equal measures.
Really enjoyed this book. So realistic and funny!
