Devenir médecin à l'hôpital ? Adam en rêvait... jusqu'au jour où il a commencé à exercer ! Il a découvert des semaines de travail de 97 heures où le médecin gagne moins que le parcmètre des urgences. Un torrent de fluides corporels dans un chaos de bruits et de cris. Un monde où l'on doit renoncer à toute vie sociale...
Dans ce témoignage à la fois cruel et plein d'humour, un jeune interne nous fait découvrir un quotidien qui se révèle à la fois cauchemardesque et terrifiant. Heureusement, il y a la dérision qui permet de garder un peu de légèreté.
Et surtout, il y a des éclairs de bonheur, notamment quand Adam fait naître un enfant ou que ses patients lui confient leurs petites histoires. Tendres, déchirantes ou drôles, ces histoires sont un concentré d'humanité faisant oublier la difficulté du métier. L'un des plus difficiles, mais aussi l'un des plus beaux métiers du monde.

THE NO. 1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER This is Going to Hurt was the publishing phenomenon of the century, read by many millions, loved by at least fifty of them, and adapted into a major TV series. But it was only part of the story. By turns hilarious, heartbreaking and humbling, Undoctored is about what happens when a doctor hangs up his scrubs, but medicine refuses to let go of him. It''s about an extraordinary medical school education. It''s about opening old wounds and examining the present-day scars. It''s about hospital admissions and personal ones. It''s about blowing up your life and stitching it back together. It''s about being a doctor and being a patient. It''s about 300 pages long. Undoctored is Adam Kay''s funniest and most moving book yet - an astonishing portrait of a life in and out of medicine, from one of Britain''s finest storytellers.

Il croyait si bien connaître les femmes... Cheffe pâtissière dans un restaurant de prestige, Liv pensait avoir décroché le job idéal. Jusqu'à ce qu'elle se fasse renvoyer pour avoir surpris son boss en train de harceler une employée. Depuis, Liv n'a qu'une idée en tête : le mettre hors d'état de nuire. Pour y parvenir, elle voudrait bien pouvoir se passer des services de Braden Mack, cet homme d'affaires riche et sexy, bien trop protecteur à son goût, qui insiste pour l'aider. Mais elle n'a pas le choix : elle va devoir oeuvrer dans l'ombre avec lui si elle veut faire tomber son ancien chef. Ce qui s'avère épineux car, même si Mack a le don de l'exaspérer, sa présence magnétique provoque en elle des sensations incontrôlables...
S'il y a une chose que Mack ne supporte pas, ce sont les hommes de pouvoir qui se croient tout permis. Alors, quand la volcanique Liv lui raconte que son ex-patron tente de l'intimider, son sang ne fait qu'un tour. Il va faire payer ce salaud et, au passage, prouver à Liv qu'il n'est pas le play-boy futile qu'elle imagine. Mais comment aider une femme qui se braque à la moindre suggestion, la seule que son charme laisse indifférente ?
