Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
A Smarter You In 15 Minutes… What is your time worth?

Life is something to be treasured but when the time comes for us to embrace the promise of the circle of life we tend to sprint in the opposite direction. Mankind is finding ways to alter births, address injury and diseases, doing everything in its power to keep the decaying body alive.

Dr. Atul Gawande uses his book to express his thoughts about the medical field and how he is astonished by what it is impossible to teach in medical school. How to accept the inevitable. He explains and gives experiences to shed light on roles of medical professionals. How they have to share but retain their emotions in grim situations.

This book educates its audience on how medicine is a comforter to the fortunate but can also aid in the destruction of the body. Gawanda, a practicing surgeon, enlightens from firsthand experiences sharing tales of meeting elderly individuals and watching people fight for life. Yet the question remains, while we try to extend our life does it really matter in the end.
