Description

The New York Times number-one best seller.

At the age of 36, 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 treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.

When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi's transformation from a medical student asking what makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon working in the core of human identity - the brain - and finally into a patient and a new father.

What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when life is catastrophically interrupted? What does it mean to have a child as your own life fades away?

Paul Kalanithi died while working on this profoundly moving book, yet his words live on as a guide to us all. When Breath Becomes Air is a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a gifted writer who became both.

profound

"When there's no place for the scalpel, words are the surgeon's only tool."
"Words have a longevity i do not."
Lines like these often appear in this touching and profound writing, and when they do, the poetry becomes heartbreaking.

A must for anyone in healthcare

Truly a beautiful read and an inspiring man.
I believe should be required reading for any aspiring to join the healthcare field.
It is in essence an amazing and heart wrenching insight into what it can mean to practice medicine and an exploration understanding and coming to terms with death from multiple perspectives.

Simply amazing and life changing...

What made the experience of listening to When Breath Becomes Air the most enjoyable?

I have just started listening to great audio books from last month. This one may be my 3rd or 4th book which I have listened to. But I am so grateful to the GOD for giving me a chance to listen to this book. But I am still asking GOD why he did such thing to Paul. Life may be cruel at times. But it all depends on how you look at the life. Paul simply accepted what GOD has decided as the best thing for him with such calmness and authority even while facing DEATH (Humans worst fear). I ask GOD to give me that courage to face my own mortality.I do not know any other book which I listen to in future can inspire me like this. I may never ever find one which can inspire me like this in future. If ever I found one, then that must be another gem.When I am down and out in my life, I will always listen to this book to give me the inspiration, hope, courage and determination to carry on with my life. Thank you for creating such a gem of a book at the worst possible time of your life. Wishing all the very best to your loving wife Lucy and Little GOD given child Cady .... I know she will celebrate her 4th birth day on 4 July still not knowing that her beloved Daddy is no longer with her to celebrate her wonderful 4th birthday. But I am sure Paul will be looking from heaven and blessing you and Lucy...Thank You Paul for creating such a GEM of a book! Truly life changing for me. RIP Paul !

A rather disappointing story/bio

Didn't meet my expectations. Storytelling is good and the voice is not boring to listen to, but storywise it's lacking. I could not identify with the protagonist's worldview and it was rather alienating to me (little value given to happiness and pleasure and lot of value given to hard work).
