"When Breath Becomes Air" is a profound and poignant memoir written by Paul Kalanithi, a 36-year-old neurosurgeon on the verge of a spectacular career. However, upon receiving a devastating terminal lung cancer diagnosis, Kalanithi finds his life - and identity - irrevocably altered.

Switching roles from doctor to patient, Kalanithi provides an intimate window into the patient experience, offering insights into the overwhelming realities of facing death and what makes life meaningful in the process. In this transition, he asks fundamental questions about life, death, and personal purpose.

Heart-wrenching yet inspiringly stoic, "When Breath Becomes Air" is not just a tale of illness, but also a philosophical exploration of life's fleeting nature and the resilience of the human spirit. It's a must-read for those seeking to understand the human capacity for endurance in the face of great adversity and the pursuit of a meaningful life in the wake of inevitable mortality.
