When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

The author Paul is a writer and neurosurgeon.  He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer at the age of 36.  Paul shares his career challenges, making life and death decisions as a neurosurgeon.  He writes about being both patient and doctor at the same time.  Paul also explores his wife having their baby as he faces death.  This memoir is deeply moving as Paul delves into topics such as what makes life meaningful and how does one decide what is important and meaningful with so little time left.
