Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Soon to be a major AMC TV series starring Ben Whishaw and a 2.5 million-copy international bestseller, This Is Going to Hurt is Adam Kay's equally "heartbreaking" and "darkly funny" (New Yorker) memoir of his years as a young doctor.

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 first-year doctor.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights, and missed weekends, comedian and former medical resident Adam Kay's This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the front lines of medicine.

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.

Review Quote*"Darkly funny. ... heartbreaking."
Review Quote*"Hilarious and heartbreaking. ...I howled, yelped, and occasionally choked with laughter. ...This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way."
Review Quote*"It's so hilarious. It's so irreverent, both about himself, the patients, the doctors in charge of him, that I think I laughed on every page." 
Review Quote*"Blisteringly funny."
Review Quote*"So clinically funny and politically important that it should be given out on prescription."
Review Quote*"Brilliant. Five stars. Amazing."
Review Quote*"Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble, and entirely lovable."
Review Quote*"Bloody funny."
