Being Mortal
Being Mortal Medicine and What Matters in the End By Gawande, Atul Book - 2014

Some of us give thought to what it means to truly live, but few of us to how we prefer our lives to end. In fact, the subject is so taboo that even medical professionals avoid it, leading to decisions that dramatically decrease the quality of life during inevitable final days.

With characteristic honesty and humility, Gawande twines data, history, and anecdotes (both professional and personal) to encourage us to think about what really matters, what we most want to do, what living fully means when you know you have limited days. (As we all do.)
