Review: When Breath Becomes Air

When Breath Becomes Air
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fascinating peek into the mind and everyday life of a young resident neurosurgeon (e.g., daily activities, life priorities, view of patients, how treatment decisions are made, and a glimpse into brain surgery) married with the rare perspective of this same individual facing death from cancer. A conundrum. The perspective is both clinical and emotional.
