When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

When Breath Becomes Air

By Paul Kalanithi
+ 1 Contributors

What makes a virtuous and meaningful life? Paul Kalanithi believed that the answer lay in medicine's most demanding specialization, neurosurgery. Here are patients at their life's most critical moment. Here he worked in the most critical place for human identity, the brain. What is it like to do that every day; and what happens when life is catastrophically interrupted? When Breath Becomes Air is an unforgettable reflection on the practice of medicine and the relationship between doctor and patient, from a gifted writer who became both. With a foreword by Dr Abraham Verghese and an epilogue by the author's wife, Lucy.
