Coming to terms with mortality can be an excruciating time. Paul Kalanithi was a neurosurgeon in the peak of his career when he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. This book is a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and the relationship between doctor and patient.

“I began to realize that coming face to face with my own mortality, in a sense, had changed nothing and everything,” he wrote. “Seven words from Samuel Beckett began to repeat in my head: ‘I can’t go on. I’ll go on.’” This book is great for both someone facing terminal cancer and those with loved ones facing terminal cancer. It is both informative and inspiring, with many finding it a comfort to have knowledge to lessen the fear of death.
