When Breath Becomes Air - Paul Kalanithi

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

Luminous and life-affirming, When Breath Becomes Air is an emotional and heart-breakingly beautiful story about what it means to live in the face of dying.

Chronicling Paul Kalanithi’s diagnosis with inoperable cancer as a neurosurgical resident to becoming a patient himself, the story is richly layered with prose so elegant and beautiful you’ll want to sip rather than gulp it

I cried at the end, and that doesn’t happen often, but I’m so glad I got such an intimate look at Paul Kalanithi’s heart and the wonderful person he was. I highly recommend this extraordinary medical memoir to everyone, especially those who ponder the bigger questions in life.
