At the age of thirty six 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 When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi s transformation from a nave medical student possessed as he wrote by the question of what given that all organisms die makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain the most critical place for human identity and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality What makes life worth living in the face of death What do you do when the future no longer a ladder toward your goals in life flattens out into a perpetual present What does it mean to have a child to nurture a new life as another fades away These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving exquisitely observed memoir
