When Breath Becomes Air

30 Jan

A very touching memoir by neurosurgeon Dr. Kalanithi confronting his own mortality. Beautifully written and felt in every page.

“Inspiring . . . Kalanithi strives to define his dual role as physician and patient, and he weighs in on such topics as what makes life meaningful and how one determines what is most important when little time is left. . . . This deeply moving memoir reveals how much can be achieved through service and gratitude when a life is courageously and resiliently lived.”Publishers Weekly
