This is Going to Hurt ‘Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable.' - Stephen Fry

The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller and Humour Book of the Year
Winner of the Books Are My Bag Book of the Year
Winner of iBooks' Book of the Year

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.

As seen on ITV's Zoe Ball Book Club

This edition includes extra diary entries and a new afterword by the author.

    As almost 60% of my family have slaved working in the NHS for about a century as I know to,I hail this author and book as absolutely brilliantly descriptive ,astoundingly factual,peppered with shots of humour,and tears.It shows the utter dedication of Doctors,Nurses,and NHS staff,overtired,overworked,mentally stretched beyond what should be expected of them I will never ever understand why Knighthoods,awards and the such can go to pop stars,actors,footballers etc,who have already had the adulation from us the public,as well as the financial rewards,when Surgeons,dedicated Doctors,Consultants,nurses,without any recognition,quietly give all they have to give.....and more,serving us daily ,from the beginning of our lives to the end.Bless them all.READ THIS BOOK,DON’T MISS OUT ON IT!!!!!?

  • Funny and heartbreaking

    By Axeman5000
    A great book - full of really bleak humour but with some truly horrible stings in its tail. Read it and gain a new perspective on the doctors working in your hospitals, but be prepared for it to stay with you long after you finish it
  • You won’t put it down until the last page is turned

    By Katgonzalez2010
    I could write a long review on this, but actually all I need to say is read it. Captivating from the start, if you have a sense of humour you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t, I suggest you find one first.
  • Incredible
