The acclaimed multimillion-copy bestseller, This Is Going to Hurt is Adam Kay's equally "blisteringly funny" (Boston Globe) and "heartbreaking" (New Yorker) secret diaries 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.

"Darkly funny. ... heartbreaking." -- Sam Knight, The New Yorker

"Hilarious and heartbreaking. ...I howled, yelped, and occasionally choked with laughter. ...This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way." -- Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times (London), "Humour Book of the Year"

"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."  -- Kristan Higgins, Entertainment Weekly

"Blisteringly funny." -- Boston Globe

"So clinically funny and politically important that it should be given out on prescription." -- The Guardian

"Brilliant. Five stars. Amazing." -- Mark Haddon, bestselling author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

"Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble, and entirely lovable." -- Stephen Fry, actor, comedian, and author of Mythos

"Bloody funny." -- Minnie Driver
