Description

THE UK’S BESTSELLING EBOOK OF 2011.

Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.

A woman troubled by pornographic dreams about Tom Jones. An 80-year-old man who can't remember why he's come to see the doctor. A woman with a common cold demanding (but not receiving) antibiotics. A man with a sore knee. A young woman who has been trying to conceive for a while but now finds herself pregnant and isn't sure she wants to go through with it. A 7-year-old boy with 'tummy aches' that don't really exist.

These are his patients.

Confessions of a GP is a witty insight into the life of a family doctor. Funny and moving in equal measure it will change the way you look at your GP next time you pop in with the sniffles.

Reviews

‘An original book written by a real GP, which will make you laugh out loud and ponder over serious matters, all at the same time. Hilarious and touching.’
I LOVE BOOKS, Amazon (390+ 5* reviews!)

    This is a honest confession made humorous. You can pick up at any point and read on without a need to read from page to page.

    Was a bit of a whinge from an obviously overpaid, pompous, sometimes unethical and lazy doctor. That's how this writer comes across to me. Hopefully not all doctors are doing or thinking the same thing. Some funny bits, but mostly a bit of a snooze.
  • Strong foundation but not much more

    I'm a little torn about this book. I bought it because I thought it could be a light-hearted and fun read and perhaps give me a giggle at a few perfect strangers. Unfortunately the book ended up being a few stories slapped together by a doctor who harps on about his middle class upbringing and clearly has a chip on his shoulder. A couple of times he says, "I don't like to judge my patients" but in the next breath he's dishing out just what he thinks about them. That being said the book is still mostly readable if you gloss over gripes about the NHS. It's just not what I expected. Then again, you get what you pay for.

    I couldn't put this book away. Every page turned gave me a new touch of inspiration and understanding of the world around me from the eyes of someone who has seen it from a different perspective and can relate it in an easily readable way.
