Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable. (Stephen Fry)

I'm not a Doctor (despite what I sometimes say) but I’d prescribe this book to anyone and everyone. It's laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad and gives you the lowdown on what it’s like to be holding it together while serving on the front line of our beloved but beleaguered NHS. It’s wonderful (Jonathan Ross)

Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory glory, dark comedy and unavoidable sadness. A blisteringly funny account shot through with harrowing detail, many pertinent truths and the humanity we all hope doctors conceal behind their unflappable exteriors. (Jo Brand)

As hilarious as it is heartbreaking – and it IS heartbreaking (also hilarious) (Charlie Brooker)

Unputdownable. You must read this book if you like reading, like laughing or love our NHS. It’s a spit-your-tea-out-laughing clarion call to stand up for our junior doctors with all our might (Shappi Khorsandi)

What an amazing book. I laughed so hard and often I nearly choked, but it’s also very moving and important. Everyone should read it. (Cathy Rentzenbrink)

By turns hilarious, shocking, heartbreaking and humbling (John Niven)

Much like the NHS itself, this book is filled with hope, despair, miracles, catastrophe and acres of the sharpest gallows humour. A very funny book with a very sobering message (Chris Addison)

Horrifyingly hilarious and hilariously horrifying (Danny Wallace)

This is a ferociously funny book, but beneath the sheen of brilliant one-liners is a passionate, acutely personal examination of what the health service does for us, and what we're in danger of doing to it (Mark Watson)
