Publisher's Summary

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi| Book Summary | Readtrepreneur
Disclaimer: This is not the original book
What makes life worth living? Paul has always strove to understand the meaning of life - first through literature, then through medicine.
This audiobook, When Breath Becomes Air, tells us the true story of Paul Kalanithi, who always wondered about the meaning of life and death. Paul brings us through his journey as a surgeon and a patient, as we understand more about the struggles of their battles with cancer.

"Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete." - Paul Kalanithi
As a neurosurgeon, Paul has always come face to face with life and death of his patients. He had guided many families through the deaths of his many patients, but when Paul became a patient of cancer himself, he was clueless.
From a neurosurgeon with a bright future to a man facing death, Paul debated on his next course of action, and still strove to make the most out of the limited time he had.
P.S. This is a truly heart-warming audiobook that gives listeners a deeper insight of life and death which will make you laugh and cry, as late Paul Kalanithi tells his story.

don't get it

I'm confused as to why this book received such high ratings. Nothing earth-shattering happened. It seems like it could have been on block instead of an actual novel. I'm sorry but I do not enjoy it at all

heart breaking story.

Any additional comments?

Wonderful, thoughtful book. So very sad that Paul Kalanithi died before he saw how well his book has been received. The book is about the meaning of life...he certainly packed a lot of meaning in his very short life.
