This complete (and completely gross) guide to the human body is the hilarious debut nonfiction children's book from world-wide multi-million bestselling author and former doctor Adam Kay! Do you ever think about your body and how it works? Like really, really think about it? The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well...pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your math teacher's is even weirder. This book is going to tell you what's actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like: Are boogers safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they're safe. Chew away!) And how much of your life will you spend on the toilet? About a year—so bring a good book. (I recommend this one.) Sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on (slightly repulsive) tour of your insides. Welcome to Kay's Anatomy*. *A fancy word for your body. See, you're learning already.

'Very funny and frank' Independent 'Reads like Scrubs: The Blog ... funny and awful in equal measure' Observer * * * * * * * The bestselling real life story of a hapless junior doctor, based on his columns written anonymously for the Telegraph. IF YOU'RE GOING to be ill, it's best to avoid the first Wednesday in August. This is the day when junior doctors graduate to their first placements and begin to face having to put into practice what they have spent the last six years learning. Starting on the evening before he begins work as a doctor, this book charts Max Pemberton's touching and funny journey through his first year in the NHS. Progressing from youthful idealism to frank bewilderment, Max realises how little his job is about 'saving people' and how much of his time is taken up by signing forms and trying to figure out all the important things no one has explained yet -- for example, the crucial question of how to tell whether someone is dead or not. Along the way, Max and his fellow fledgling doctors grapple with the complicated questions of life, love, mental health and how on earth to make time to do your laundry. All Creatures Great and Small meets Bridget Jones's Diary, this is a humorous and accessible peek into a world which you'd normally need a medical degree to witness. If you enjoy Trust Me, I'm a (Junior) Doctor, don't miss the follow-up titles Where Does It Hurt? and The Doctor Will See You Now.

But that was only part of the story. What happened when a physician leaves medicine - but medicine refuses to let go of HIM...? By turns hilarious, heartbreaking and humbling, UNDOCTORED reflects on a life inextricably bound up with medicine: from medical school education to what's happened since Dr. Kay, battered and bruised from his time on the NHS frontline, finally hung up his scrubs. It's about opening old wounds and examining present-day scars. About admissions both hospital and personal. About blowing up your life - and stitching it back together...
