it was amazing

This memoir, written by a neurosurgeon who was diagnosed with terminal cancer in his early 40s, will challenge you to rethink what you believe about death and about how to find meaning in your life. It's a beautiful, important book. Paul Kalanithi was uniquely qualified to write it, having dedicated much of his academic life before medical school to studying literature. Highly recommended.
