    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    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).
