Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse's Story, written and read by Christie Watson. Christie Watson was a nurse for 20 years. Taking us from birth to death and from A&E to the mortuary, The Language of Kindness is an astonishing account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.

After 80+ audible listens, this is the first time I’ve felt compelled to leave a review. This book is such an honest reflection on life within the NHS, at a time of great change and uncertainty. It’s emotionally charged without being overly dramaticised because it doesn’t need to be. The calm delivery despite at times the deeply moving content in my experience sums nurses up to a tee. Unsung heroes. I wish I could thank the author for putting into words how I and many of my NHS colleagues feel at work each day and writing this very human reflection.
