9781509858651: This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor
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 goodbye 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 (with a foreword attempting to explain the National Health Service to a non-UK audience). Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking by turns, this is 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.

About the Author:
Adam Kay is an award-winning comedian and writer for TV and film, including Mitchell & Webb and Very British Problems. He previously worked for many years as a junior doctor. 
Review:
“Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . I howled, yelped and occasionally choked with laughter . . . This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way.” —Times

“If you are at all squeamish, I recommend you read This is Going to Hurt lying flat on your back. More than once on my commute, as I raced through Adam Kay’s hilarious, heartbreaking book, I felt the legs begin to wobble . . . some entries are so funny, they make you howl.” —Daily Telegraph

“The humour is unflinching in its darkness . . . Yet I did laugh. A lot. Kay is a skilful, muscular writer, his narrative swinging from laugh-out-loud anecdotes to tales of sheer horror. The book’s title is harrowingly apt.” —Independent

“We know that junior doctors have it rough. But it takes Kay’s account of his 97-hour-week struggle to see just how rough. . . hilariously gruesome.” —Sunday Times

 “A heartening, laugh-out-loud confessional . . . Kay’s warts-and-all account will not only bring plenty of laughs but also delivers a moving report.” —Financial Times

"Shocking, sad, funny and alarming . . . A truly laudable book, hilarious, moving and caustic . . . The patient stories impact and linger in the mind. . . Kay’s book is vital and timely." —Scotsman

"If you read one book this year, make it Adam Kay’s hilarious, horrifying, heartbreaking insight into the life of a junior doctor . . . an eye-opening and brutally funny insight . . .What a terrible loss Adam Kay is to the medical profession. But what a tremendous gain for your bookshelf.” —Daily Express

“Adam Kay writes with scalpel-sharp wit . . . a genital-warts and-all account of what life is really like for junior doctors . . . Witty, wise and frequently moving.” —Mail on Sunday

“I found myself laughing in horror over and over, but Kay’s poignant final act brought me to tears. This is a valuable window into the life of a junior doctor that should be required reading for all.” —Stylist

"Hilarious . . . not just laugh-out-loud funny, but precise, upsetting and utterly sobering for anyone at all connected with the NHS." —Spectator Books of the Year
