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.

What is it with politicians? To be a successful politician do you have to lose your humanity beforehand?
It is disgusting that this is a factual story on a health system. So many lives are being made torturous. People's lives are being destroyed? What the hell for?
Health and education should be the most resourced systems in all countries. Plain common sense and decency.
This story should be heard by everyone and then we should all get people power to act and change lying, corrupt political systems.
Bloody hell.
