Description for When Breath Becomes Air
"A vital book about dying. Awe-inspiring and exquisite. Obligatory reading for the living." (Nigella Lawson)
"Rattling. Heartbreaking. Beautiful." (Atul Gawande, author of BEING MORTAL)
"A great, indelible book ... as intimate and illuminating as Atul Gawande’s “Being Mortal,” to cite only one recent example of a doctor’s book that has had exceptionally wide appeal ... I guarantee that finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option ... gripping from the start ... None of it is maudlin. Nothing is exaggerated. As he wrote to a friend: “It’s just tragic enough and just imaginable enough.” And just important enough to be unmissable." (New York Times)
"Powerful and poignant." (The Sunday Times)
"Less a memoir than a reflection on life and purpose… [A] vital book." (The Economist)
"Extraordinary…Remarkable… luminous, revelatory memoir about mortality and what makes being alive meaningful ... Lyrical, intimate, insistent and profound. Kalanithi had the mind of the polymath and the ear of a poet." (Heather Hodson Daily Telegraph)
"Powerful and poignant… Elegantly written posthumous memoir… Should be compulsory for anyone who intends to be a doctor… A profound reflection on the meaning of life." (Daisy Goodwin Sunday Times)
"A stark, fascinating, well-written and heroic memoir." (Stefanie Marsh The Times)
"The power of this book lies in its eloquent insistence that we are all confronting our mortality every day, whether we know it or not. The real question we face, Kalanithi writes, is not how long, but rather how, we will live – and the answer does not appear in any medical textbook." (Alice Okeeffe Guardian)
"Exceptional." (Katie Law Evening Standard)
For readers of Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal and Henry Marsh’s Do No Harm, an unforgettably powerful and heart-breaking book about how to live.See all Description for When Breath Becomes Air

I'm grateful to Amazon for enabling me to read to this book. Amazing service.
I have a friend who's father died of Cancer, I didn't understand how to respond then. Reading the book takes you through the suffering and empathise the cancer patients and their family. I am grateful that the author used his remaining energy to share these experiences which will go down in history as a valuable insight into human suffering.
