Review

IÕd prescribe this book to anyone and everyone. It's laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad and gives you the lowdown on what itÕs like to be holding it together while serving on the front line of our beloved but beleaguered NHS. ItÕs wonderful -- Jonathan Ross

So clinically funny and politically important for supporters of the NHS that it should be given out on prescription _ Guardian

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

You will laugh, cry and be overwhelmed with gratitude for the medical profession who work so shockingly hard to patch us up and prolong our lives _ Daily Express

Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory glory, dark comedy and unavoidable sadness. A blisteringly funny account shot through with harrowing detail, many pertinent truths and the humanity we all hope doctors conceal behind their unflappable exteriors -- Jo Brand

As hilarious as it is heartbreaking Ð and it IS heartbreaking (also hilarious) -- Charlie Brooker

Blisteringly funny, politically enraging and often heartbreaking . . . hilarious . . . brimming not just with humour but with humanity . . . This should be a wake-up call to all who value the NHS -- Hannah Beckerman _ Sunday Express

A funny, excoriatingly revealing, beautiful book -- Dawn French

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 bookÕs title is harrowingly apt . . . In the end, this book is a call to arms. That the NHS lost Kay is a tragedy. That this diary was written well before the GovernmentÕs battle with junior doctors is more disturbing still _ i

Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . I howled, yelped and occasionally choked with laughter . . . ItÕs an invigorating addition to the vogue for medical memoirs. I like to think of it sitting on a shelf next to Henry Marsh, Atul Gawande and Paul Kalanithi, turning the air bluer and bluer. It has something of all those writers, but with an added dash of a profane Adrian Mole . . . This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way -- Cathy Rentzenbrink _ The Times
