When Breath Becomes Air
This book will change your perspective on everything—even something many of us leave as an unspoken taboo: mortality. Paul Kalanithi died in March 2015 while working on this book. “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.’”
When Breath Becomes Air is a transformational read—a life-affirming tale of facing death with dignity.
