A hilarious, heartfelt, and refreshingly honest memoir and New York Times bestseller by the beloved comedic actress known for her roles on Freaks and Geeks, Dawson’s Creek, and Cougar Town who has become “the breakout star of Instagram stories...Imagine I Love Lucy mixed with a modern lifestyle guru” (The New Yorker). There’s no stopping Busy Philipps. From the time she was two and “aced out in her nudes” to explore the neighborhood (as her mom famously described her toddler jailbreak), Busy has always been headstrong, defiant, and determined not to miss out on all the fun. These qualities led her to leave Scottsdale, Arizona, at the age of nineteen to pursue her passion for acting in Hollywood. But much like her painful and painfully funny teenage years, chasing her dreams wasn’t always easy and sometimes hurt more than a little. In a memoir “that often reads like a Real World confessional or an open diary” (Kirkus Reviews), Busy opens up about chafing against a sexist system rife with on-set bullying and body shaming, being there when friends face shattering loss, enduring devastating personal and professional betrayals from those she loved best, and struggling with postpartum anxiety and the challenges of motherhood. But Busy also brings to the page her sly sense of humor and the unshakeable sense that disappointment shouldn’t stand in her way—even when she’s knocked down both figuratively and literally (from a knee injury at her seventh-grade dance to a violent encounter on the set of Freaks and Geeks). The rough patches in her life are tempered by times of hilarity and joy: leveraging a flawless impression of Cher from Clueless into her first paid acting gig, helping reinvent a genre with cult classic Freaks and Geeks, becoming fast friends with Dawson’s Creek castmate Michelle Williams, staging her own surprise wedding, conquering natural childbirth with the help of a Mad Men–themed hallucination, and of course, how her Instagram stories became “the most addictive thing on the internet right now” (Cosmopolitan). Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood—“if you think you know Busy from her Instagram stories, you don’t know the half of it” (Jenni Konner). Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens large and small. From “candid tales of celebrity life, mom life, and general Busy-ness” (W Magazine), This Will Only Hurt a Little “is everything we’ve been dying to hear about” (Bustle).

This trenchant and expert book by an experienced doctor - who has worked both in hospitals and in general practice - advances the urgent case for an independent medical inspectorate to stop a host of avoidable errors which damage patients. Dr. Pickering draws on his many years of practice and on his later career as an expert witness on behalf of plaintiffs, to marshal both arguments and detailed evidence which support the need for major changes. To prevent many avoidable clinical errors and to enhance clinical practice we urgently need a local and independent body in every region, free from the NHS 'brotherhood' of vested-interests yet staffed by clinicians. These local inspectors would all investigate all clinical practices. They would do so on a regular, normal, week-by-week basis. And thus help to prevent very many everyday errors which do so much damage to patients, and which are usually both costly and unremarked, and often disastrous to patients. As Dr. Hammond says: "It was a brilliant idea. It was strongly resisted by the medical establishment.

-- In this, her second book, Connie Carson-Romano utilizes her experiences, both professional and private, to help make the world of the hospital less frightening to those who require the services. "Admission to the hospital is a frightening experience. Being a Registered Nurse and House Supervisor did not prepare me for the reality of being a patient and the wife of a patient. After years of taking care of others and supervising the functioning of a hospital my husband (a retired physician) and I were shocked by the reality of admission to a hospital in place of those we used to care for. Realization of the frustration that must be felt by those who did not have the experience or knowledge that we had planted the seeds of sharing the basics for those facing the challenges of a hospital stay. In this book I attempt to explain in simple everyday terms, with a little dry humor, the indigenous culture of a hospital. Starting with the admission process, including the paperwork you probably will never read, we explore the various floors in a hospital explaining the routines and processes involved in the day to day function. There is even a chapter on the people you are likely to meet (or at least get a bill from). Knowing what to expect can help relieve some of the stress from an already stressful event. Knowing your rights as a patient and how to communicate with staff can be priceless. So here is a tourist guide to the hospital. It should make it hurt a little less even if you don't speak the hospital lingo."
