The multi-million copy bestseller
Book of the Year at The National Book Awards

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

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.

Sunday Times Number One Bestseller for over eight months and winner of a record FOUR National Book Awards: Book of the Year, Non-Fiction Book of the Year, New Writer of the Year and Zoe Ball Book Club Book of the Year.

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

Loads of laughs it a serious undertone

A rather tongue in cheek documentation of the British public healthcare system. On the surface it reads like a silly account of the journey a medical student/professional goes through, there are some serious undertones about what the role actually entails. Perfect read for when on an airplane, as the structure of the book allows for short and intermittent reads.

Hilarious and heartbreaking

I loved the book! It was laugh out load funny.. Adam has a fantastic way with words and his casually witty observations are brilliant. The book is also very sad in many ways as seeing how junior doctors are being exploited and pushed to the edge of sanity. I hope that the book actually prompts some sort of a change but if nothing, at least gets patients to see the human side of medical professionals.
