Pre-order UNDOCTORED: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients

This is Going to Hurt was the publishing phenomenon of the century, read by many millions, loved by at least fifty of them, and adapted into a major TV series. But it was only part of the story.

By turns hilarious, heartbreaking and humbling, Undoctored is about what happens when a doctor hangs up his scrubs, but medicine refuses to let go of him.

It’s about an extraordinary medical school education.
It’s about opening old wounds and examining the present-day scars.
It’s about hospital admissions and personal ones.
It’s about blowing up your life and stitching it back together.
It’s about being a doctor and being a patient.
It’s about 300 pages long.

Undoctored is Adam Kay’s funniest and most moving book yet – an astonishing portrait of a life in and out of medicine, from one of Britain’s finest storytellers.

Brilliant - even better than This is Going to Hurt
Jacqueline Wilson
Every bit as funny as the first one, every bit as powerful, surprising and unflinching
David Whitehouse
Spectacularly brilliant
Cathy Rentzenbrink
A gaspingly honest, hilarious and heartbreaking book from one of Britain's funniest writers
Grace Dent
I don't think anyone has made me laugh so much about the human body as Adam Kay, while simultaneously bestowing the gift of impotent rage at the state of the NHS
Reverend Richard Coles
Very funny, very moving - Adam Kay has done it again, the talented c***. PS Sorry for swearing in this quote
