"Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete." - Paul Kalanithi
As a neurosurgeon, Paul has always come face to face with life and death of his patients. He had guided many families through the deaths of his many patients but when Paul became a patient of cancer himself, he was clueless.
From a neurosurgeon with a bright future to a man facing death, Paul debated on his next course of action and still strove to make the most out of the limited time he had.
P.S. This is a truly heart-warming, page-turning book that gives readers a deeper insight of life and death which will make you laugh and cry as late Paul Kalanithi tells his story.
