Video About This Audio Book

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
5 Hrs. 47 Min.


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.
