Linda C (libladynylindac) | 1118 comments Atul Gawande is a surgeon who has taken a look at modern medicine and its contradictions; focusing on the premise of saving and extending life at the risk of making life unendurable or unacceptable for the individual. He uses real life situations to look at end of life options: nursing homes, palliative care, active medical procedures and alternatives. We are all mortal and that makes this book relevant for everyone. Highly recommended.
