Theme: A few of my favourite things
Last week I chanced upon a book in the airport and from a quick glance, and a spy of some very dry humour, I thought it was something right on my level.
I am not normally one to go for books on best seller lists, as I have repeatedly been disappointed by them in the past. But this was an exception.
The book is This Is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay. I cannot say enough how everybody should read this book. Especially the politicians trying to penalise junior doctors and sell off the NHS or for anyone debating a career in medicine. And we should all realise how lucky we are.
This book is frank, hilarious, frightening, melancholy and heartbreaking in equal measures. There is a very serious message about overworking, close calls, ignorance and the future realities.
There were a few key learnings, and questions, for me on finishing this book.
