REVIEW: This Is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

Updated: Feb 19, 2019

“the depth of the lows is the price you pay for the height of the highs.”


I absolutely whizzed through this book because it was brilliantly funny, inspiring and emotional.

Ex-junior doctor Adam Kay, put together his diaries from his first few years and it makes for a fascinating read. Some of the stories are literally laugh out loud funny and shocking. I seriously don't understand why people do some of the things he mentions. But what isn't funny, is how much we expect of, and put our, junior doctors (and above) through. How can we possibly expect doctors to care for us if we don't let them care for themselves? Towards the end, he tells the story of the incident which ultimately led to him leaving the NHS and wow, did I cry. And that is just one doctor's story, imagine how many others are out there.

An absolutely brilliant read - hilarious and moving. It literally has everything you could want in a memoir. Read it!
