A Book to Read and Love: When Breath Becomes Air - Paul Kalanithi

A short summary of the book When Breath Becomes Air:

My death as a doctor.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Even if I'm dying, until I actually die, I'm still living."



Questions to ponder while reading When Breath Becomes Air:

Does medical science strive too hard?

What is more important - the quality of life or the quantity of life?


My thoughts about the book:


One of the best books from the patient's perspective.

Medicine can't cure everything.

Quality of life is an important consideration in medical decisions.
