Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat...but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work.

An entertaining piece but not value for money

Another entertaining piece by Adam Kay but disappointingly short for the price of a credit. Compared to his first authorial outing, it was a little light on the content as well, lacking the laughs as well as the poignancy.

Funny as always.

Yet another example of how tragic and amazing working a healthcare professional is. He says what many can't say and shares the inner workings of what it's like to work in healthcare.

Not long enough to be engaging.

Not long enough to be engaging, I enjoyed the last book but I think this is worth an exchange. Disappointing.
