Winner of the Books Are My Bag Non-Fiction Book of the Year
Winner of the Books Are My Bag Readers' Choice Award
Winner of Blackwell's Debut Book of the Year
Winner of iBooks' Book of the Year



"The humour is unflinching in its darkness . . . Yet I did laugh. A lot. Kay is a skilful, muscular writer, his narrative swinging from laugh-out-loud anecdotes to tales of sheer horror. The book's title is harrowingly apt." --Independent

"A heartening, laugh-out-loud confessional . . . Kay's warts-and-all account will not only bring plenty of laughs but also delivers a moving report." --Financial Times

"We know that junior doctors have it rough. But it takes Kay's account of his 97-hour-week struggle to see just how rough. . . hilariously gruesome." --Sunday Times

"If you read one book this year, make it Adam Kay's hilarious, horrifying, heartbreaking insight into the life of a junior doctor . . . an eye-opening and brutally funny insight . . .What a terrible loss Adam Kay is to the medical profession. But what a tremendous gain for your bookshelf." --Daily Express

"Adam Kay writes with scalpel-sharp wit . . . a genital-warts and-all account of what life is really like for junior doctors . . . Witty, wise and frequently moving." --Mail on Sunday

"Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable." --Stephen Fry

"It documents the heart-lifting highs and gut-wrenching lows, offering a brutally honest depiction of life as a junior doctor." --Deadline

"Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . I howled, yelped and occasionally choked with laughter . . . This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way." --Times


"frank and excruciatingly funny...this is a moving tribute to the people who keep the NHS going."​--The Guardian US

"If you are at all squeamish, I recommend you read This is Going to Hurt lying flat on your back. More than once on my commute, as I raced through Adam Kay's hilarious, heartbreaking book, I felt the legs begin to wobble . . . some entries are so funny, they make you howl." --Daily Telegraph


"Very funny."--Scott Eastwood​

"Shocking, sad, funny and alarming . . . A truly laudable book, hilarious, moving and caustic . . . The patient stories impact and linger in the mind. . . Kay's book is vital and timely." --Scotsman

"
A brilliantly written, funny, and hugely emotional book." - Euan Blair, cofounder and CEO of WhiteHat
