When Breath Becomes Air. Written by Paul Kalanithi.
The honesty and openness of Paul Kalanithi are astonishing. He turned his tragic circumstances into a study of how a patient-doctor relationship has a profound effect on the psychological aspect of a terminal illness.
I guess that the writing process in some small way was therapeutic for him and allowed his pain to be transferred into words of wisdom for others to take comfort from.
Although some might be put off by the blurb if they have suffered loss themselves, it is written so well that the reader will forget the diagnosis and read into the much deeper messages about life and death that he succinctly puts across.
***** Five star GoodReads review from me.
