Adam Kay spent a number of years as a Junior Doctor before finally throwing in the towel. This book tracks his years as a Junior Doctor, working his way up each year.
Each chapter builds up the story with the painful and pleasurable moments increasing in intensity as he is allowed more autonomy, with the corollary of more responsibility.
The denouement comes towards the end and just hits you. It will make you rethink the current system of training up Doctors and how the NHS squeezes every ounce of usefulness of Junior Doctors, then casts them to one side.
Thought provoking in every way and a book to give to anyone looking to get into the medical profession, Doctor or otherwise.
