BOOK OF THE YEAR
Books Are My Bag Readers' Awards
'If you read one book this year, make it this one' Daily Express
97-hour weeks. Life and death decisions. A constant tsunami of bodily fluids. And the hospital parking meter earns more money than you.
Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's diaries provide a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.
'So funny and important it should be given out on prescription'
'Laugh-out-loud funny and heartbreakingly sad'
'At once hilarious and shocking, moving and irreverent, This is Going to Hurt is a book that demands to be read'
INCLUDES BONUS DIARY ENTRIES AND A NEW AFTERWORD BY THE AUTHOR
