It is so damn funny. Straight up, if you only agree to read one book I’ve recommended on this platform, let it be this. (But please read more).
It’s the diary of Adam Kay during his time working (or triple-backflipping) his way through the NHS (or world’s most life-depending obstacle course), until the point where enough was enough. Hilarious, ludicrous anecdotes mixed with the raw, tragic, humbling ones, interchanging between moods effortlessly. The jargon is minimal anyway, but the footnotes ensure this is accessible for everyone.
Not only is this an essential read for everyone to understand the sheer strength of character of our doctors, but it is an eye-opening peek at the semi-lunacy of patients.
