    So I told them the truth the hours are terrible, the pay is terrible, the conditions are terrible you re underappreciated, unsupported, disrespected and frequently physically endangered But there s no better job in the worldI devoured this book in a single sitting It is rare to find a book that can make you laugh and cry in equal measure especially, I think, a nonfictio

Extremely witty and funny I fully appreciated the use of Harry Potter aliases.This gives a realistic picture of what it is like to work for the NHS as a junior doctor and jut trying
