Description

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.

Book Review "This Is Going to Hurt"
By: Tamara Ey Firsty

For a book that culminates in someone being so wearied/burned out/spent (or, to put it more concisely, effed up) they quit a career altogether, it sure is hysterically hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable, and, though quite emotional, remains warming and sensible. Essentially this is an edited diary of a junior doctor from house officer until senior registrar. The entrances delivery range from deadpan to vivacious - but it just hits right everytime. An engaging read which fully deserves all the awards it has won and more. Bonus point for replacing real people’s names with that of Harry Potter’s character: I spotted Seamus, Binns, Colin, Ron, Lily, Ernie, Flitwick, Fletcher, Hannah, Luna, Fred.. PS it has the best dedication page
