At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade's training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor, the next he was a patient struggling to live. In this book, he offers a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and on the relationship between doctor and patient.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Now in paperback, this memoir chronicles how the author, on the verge of completing a decade's training as a neurosurgeon, was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. It asks what makes a virtuous and meaning life, what is the source of human identity, and what to do when you have a child as your own life fades away. Kalanithi died, aged 37, in 2015, while writing the book.
