In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending. Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit.

Although difficult to face these concepts at times during the book (due to personal circumstances) this book has forever changed my perspective on aging and final time prior to death--in my opinion for the better. Thank you

When Lady Hardcastle and her maid, Florence, are invited to Lord Riddlethorpe's country estate for a week of motor racing and parties, they both agree it sounds like a perfectly charming holiday. But when one of the drivers dies in a crash during the very first race, they discover that what seemed like an uncharacteristic error in judgement may have a more sinister explanation.

The narrator's skill makes this very enjoyable book! After listening to this third book in the series--I like the relationship of the characters, adventures, and humor. Hope there are more added to the series. #3 was much less predictable

Peg Conley has been an artist all her life, but, like many of us, took a long detour into the working world - in her case, corporate sales, where she found a lot of success and was able to raise a happy family. Art became the thing she did on vacations, weekends, and when she could carve time out of her busy life. Something gnawed at her, a nagging feeling that life might hold something else for her in the midst of it all. Then came the big "aha" moment.

I usually love Oprah's publications but this was worthy of a refund from Audible . Not a good choice!
