‘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.

    Hilarious, informative and saddening all wrapped into one.

    Very enjoyable book. I found it hilarious and heartbreaking.

    Could not put this book down. Normally I’m a psychological thriller kind of girl but thought I would give this a go after hearing so many good reviews. A real insightful book...Loved it and I’m so sad it’s finished!

    Read in 24hrs. Couldn’t stop. Amazing/funny/painful and has made me question wanting to give birth... the humour of the stories helps... a lot.

    This book had me experience all possible emotions throughout. What a talented author to say writing was not his intended and original career choice. So brilliantly written, I spent nights stifling laughs at the witty comments, and tears at the heartbreaks. I’m so happy I picked up this book and have such a deeper understanding and appreciation for our friends working for the NHS. I just hope the author believes every minute he spent in his role was a minute worth spending with no regrets, as clearly thousands of people would have been worse off without his care. Thank you for sharing your experiences and opening our eyes to a world we were once so far from feeling a part of.
  • Good on the whole, but trying too hard with humour

    By Jay-Jay.
    The book is good although would be remarkably better if there were less jokes shoehorned in at random moments. Some are funny, others are completely unnecessary and give the impression of the class clown trying as hard as possible to get a laugh.
  • Great read - so hard to put down

    We listened to the audiobook and have listened to it again because its so funny and surprising and honest and awful! This should be mandatory for everyone in the UK to better understand our NHS…and have a giggle too!!
