I didn’t enjoy this books content or narration but it is just my opinion. I’m sure it’s great for the right person.

At the age of 36, on the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.

After having a loved one diagnosed with terminal lung cancer I had a friend recommend this book to me. Not having the time or patience to read it at this moment in my life I went for the Audible version. It was perfect. I was able to listen while taking care of the kids and chores and although I shed many tears it brought light to what my loved one might be going through. Great story. I pray for this man's family. Thank you for having the strength to finish his book for our benefit.
