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.

An incredible journey

This book has helped me have a guiding light to restore balance when I become to immersed in experiences or too lost in contemplation "if an unexamined life isn't worth living then is an unlived life worth examining".

This touched me deeply.

This is profoundly heartbreaking but reassuring that Paul lived his dreams, although not long enough. His book is achieving more touching and bringing people to the reality of life, meaning and purpose.

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.

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).
