Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat... but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work. In this perfect present for anyone who has ever set foot in a hospital, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.
Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The season to be jolly is the perfect subject for Dr Adam Kay’s second literary venture. These 25 tales based on his actual diaries are heartbreaking and horrifying in equal measure—and also, are so funny it’s impossible to put the book down. Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas takes place over seven Christmases in a labour ward, where babies are delivered and baubles discovered in extraordinary places. Anyone who has been in a public hospital will have a chuckle at these stories, and any sane human will better appreciate the heroic sacrifices of nurses and ward staff.

Great read but too short
Just as funny and informative as his first book, my only disappointment is that this is more a novella in length, which makes the purchase price quite high for what you get.
I was disappointed after the first book which I loved.
Great book but but expensive for how short it was
A good laugh but not really worth the money to buy it as it was over very quickly. The first book was amazing and well worth the dollars!
