Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

04/08/2015

Being MortalA few weeks ago my Father asked me to read this book, and I’m so glad he did. This is a very brave book, both because the subject matter of frailty and mortality is very challenging in and of itself and because the author delves into his familial experience and professional work to write a personal work on how we navigate the end stages of life. While there are some minor points I may disagree with, for the most part I would say I learned a lot and was given some helpful tools to use with my family in the future. This book is for any family looking to better understand the aging process and for those of preparing for the future for ourselves or for our loves ones.
