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

The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller and Humour Book of the Year
Winner of the Books Are My Bag Book of the Year
Winner of iBooks' Book of the Year

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.

As seen on ITV's Zoe Ball Book Club

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


  • Heartbreakingly funny

    By Ruff uh
    Laugh out loud funny but at the same time devastatingly sad. An insight into a system we take for granted and those people that despite having everything against them, manage to make it work.
  • Absolutely brilliant

    By Lozza87Funbags
    Loved this book.
  • Not my usual type of read but....

    By GinaGMillard
    I loved this book, the highs the lows, I found my self reading bits out at home, at work, highlighting parts and sending screenshots to friends and family. I have literally recommended it to anyone & everyone who talks to me for more than 5 minutes. Just simply a brilliantly written & insightful book, you will take something away from reading it and find yourself thinking or talking about it long after you’ve finished it.
  • Poignant, honest and very funny

    By Pauline Ainer
    As almost 60% of my family have slaved working in the NHS for about a century as I know to,I hail this author and book as absolutely brilliantly descriptive ,astoundingly factual,peppered with shots of humour,and tears.It shows the utter dedication of Doctors,Nurses,and NHS staff,overtired,overworked,mentally stretched beyond what should be expected of them I will never ever understand why Knighthoods,awards and the such can go to pop stars,actors,footballers etc,who have already had the adulation from us the public,as well as the financial rewards,when Surgeons,dedicated Doctors,Consultants,nurses,without any recognition,quietly give all they have to give.....and more,serving us daily ,from the beginning of our lives to the end.Bless them all.READ THIS BOOK,DON’T MISS OUT ON IT!!!!!?
