Paul Kalanithi was an extraordinary neurosurgeon who had his career cut short after finding out he had stage 4 lung cancer. I thought this memoir was beautifully well written, and does a great job of demonstrating that even if one who possesses medical knowledge and the understanding of disease process, we all inevitably have to face our own mortality. I found it heartbreaking, touching and demonstrates how vulnerable we feel when faced with the unknown. Well worth the read!
