      On the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. Kalanithi chronicles his transformation from a na?ive medical student 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.

    • " This is a tough read, at the same time devastating and uplifting. It's about life when lived on the edge of death, when you suddenly know your time is near but you don't know exactly how near. It's an attempt to share how it feels, one man's account of how he tried to determine what really mattered to him when his time was running out, how it changed him, and how the final months from his diagnosis and until he passed consisted of both great moments, everyday moments and painful, terrifying moments. The story has the added twist of being written by a neurosurgeon turned patient and it's a well written little masterpiece even though Kalanithi never had the opportunity to finish it himself. I was quite moved."

    • "Virkelig rørende bog der handler om at mødet med døden, og giver et unikt indblik i livet som læge. En meget modig og hudløst ærlig bog - skrevet af en døende mand - formentlig for at give os levende noget at tænke over (hvad er vigtigt?). Bogen sætter sig fast baghovedet - ikke lige til at ryste af sig. Kan varmt anbefales som en anderledes læseoplevelse. Husk en kleenex til det sidste kapitel! :-)"
