Book of when a breast becomes heir by Paul Callan EB. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars it's actually the first non-fiction book that I've read like for fun because I wanted to and not like for school so I was just proud of myself. For that and since I loved it so much, I will definitely keep my mind open to more nonfiction books. Because this book actually had a really huge impact on me.

This book is by Paul Cullen easy and he was a neurosurgeon but at the age of 36 he was diagnosed with a lung cancer and he passed away in 2015. So this is kind of his life story about why he chose to be a physician to be a neurosurgeon and his and how his life changed when he was diagnosed with cancer. So it is a very serious book but the way Paul writes the book is just so beautiful gives it a little bit of lightheartedness he is funny his story.

Is just it's inspiring and it's thought-provoking its insightful its poignant it's just beautiful so we do. Follow him from the age of a child he talks about his childhood and how his mother always wanted him to read she really emphasized the importance of reading and he read a lot of classics and so he's really throughout his life has always been kind of torn between literature and science which I can relate to do an extent.

Um obviously I love reading and have a passion for literature but I'm also in pharmacy school so I love science and medical field and all of that so I could relate to that part of it and I just thought it was very interesting and fascinating how he talked about it all when he gets into medical school and all of that he talks a lot about how doctors treat patients and the doctor to patient relationship which I found to be really really.

So you know as a pharmacist we may not deal with patients in the same way that doctors do but there are a lot of pharmacists that work in hospitals and I mean I consider working in a retail pharmacy. When you're you know dispensing medicine to people I consider them patients and so he had a lot of very important points when it comes to that. And I was also really eye-opening because then he himself becomes a patient and he talks about that flip and how he's a doctor and he's treated people with cancer but now he's a patient that has cancer is he. Supposed to treat himself or is he specific back and let other doctors do it it just.

Really really a fascinating discussion obviously it's sad because he does talk about death a lot he talks about life and death throughout his entire life he had this passion for exploring the meaning of life and gaining knowledge and so he does talk a lot about what does it mean to be alive science. You know says that humans are animals were organisms what makes us think the way we do, and so that's partially why he went into science. He felt like he needed to know science and know neurosurgery to be even begin to understand how humans works basically at the end his wife writes an epilogue talking about his last days and after he passed away and yeah I did shed some tears.

It is a sad story but I wouldn't let that significantly deter you which is such a beautiful story and there's just so many important points and impactful points that he makes and just makes you think it's a wonderful story and I don't know how else to describe it I definitely want to reread this ebook it's a great story to get lost in and to think about and just keep your mind open but if you have any at least mild interest in this book I would highly recommend picking it up if you are in the medical field at all you definitely need to read this book so yeah I am so happy that I read this.

  • Beautiful and moving
    By BBH2513
    Best book I have ever read.
  • A man who has spent his entire adult life striving to delay death came face to face with the inescap
    By srostar
    *This review was originally posted to my blog, {Books She Reads}. Portions of this review have been modified. When Breath Becomes Air starts with Paul Kalanithi viewing his own x-rays, revealing cancer that had taken residence in his body. It is clear on the very first page where this journey will end, but it is the journey itself that makes this book so inspiring. Kalanithi took me through the journey of his diagnosis, treatment, and acceptance of death. Along the way I found him to be incredibly brave. As a doctor, he knew the story being told by every x-ray and MRI he saw. A man who has spent his entire adult life striving to delay death came face to face with the inescapable reality of his own mortality. The more that I read, the more that I respected Paul Kalanithi. I was surprised by the amount of empathy that Kalanithi had as a doctor for his patients and the amount of respect he had for the mind and body. He would go above and beyond what was necessary to ensure he was making a positive difference in the lives that he touched. He understood, better than most doctors that I have met, the importance of truly listening to his patients and at taking a second look. Mr. Kalanithi reminds me that we never know what the future holds, we never know when our time on earth will end. We can plan, we can work as hard as possible, but nothing is guaranteed to us. When Breathe Becomes Air reinforces the importance of living in the moment we are in. Have goals, have dreams, make plans, but never forget that it can all be taken away at any moment. So while we plan and chase our dreams, we must not forget about the moment we are in. We must not take for granted the gift of today. Experiencing such a life-changing, out of control event is something one can never truly be prepared for. While Kalanithi had a head start in understanding the changes of his cancer, there was still a great deal to know and understand beyond that of a medical diagnosis and treatment plan. Kalanithi embraced his final journey, as well as anyone, could be expected to, he strived to maintain an open-minded, honest, and positive approach to the most terrifying and irreversible event of his life. His journey is one of the most inspiring stories I have ever had the pleasure to read. His courage and persistence to live life to his fullest potential while his body quickly died is a courage that all of us should strive to have more of in our own lives, in this very moment. These eight words put me into an emotional frenzy. Why do such horrible events happen to amazing individuals who have a passion for life and helping others? Please, don’t do this to him, to his wife, to his family. Let him stay. Let there be a miracle. I knew there was no miracle, I knew exactly the direction that this story was headed. It also didn’t matter. I was completely hooked on every word that Paul Kalanithi had to say. I was committed to following his heartbreaking journey all the way to the end. “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 I love this quote. I want this reminder to collaborate and listen to others printed and hung on my wall. I want my three girls to understand the value of their knowledge and experience and to value the knowledge and experience of others. I want them to seek out books like When Breath Becomes Air. A book of death, hope, and living. A book that will dive deep into your soul and make you cry, but also leaves you with a new found appreciation for life. Kalanithi’s perseverance and bravery are heroically inspiring. I hope I will have the ability to be as brave as he was if I ever come to battle with my mortality as he did.
  • Great read
    By Zaner94
    One of the best books I have ever read. Compelling perspective of mortality from someone who dealt with much of it. Highly recommend to all.
  • Hands down, amazing.
    By CantFindAName1010101
    I initially came across this book through a forum, about pre-med. Terminology I couldn’t understand. But written in a way I can comprehend. The book talks about patients, treatments, medicine. But really, the book is about morality and love. The ending does not develop until you’ve passed the halfway point of the book, maybe later, but it hits you like a truck. I couldn’t stop reading it, it’s just breathtaking and eye opening, the love between Paul and his wife and fighting through hell. 10/10 would recommend, read it all the way through. Your won’t regret it.
  • Tear jerker.

  • When Breath Becomes Air
    By oceans tides
    I have read this book five times. One of my top three favorite books. Touching, thought provoking and beautiful. In hoping to help a few thousand during his lifetime he has reached millions in his death. His words are woven into a lovely tapestry of what it means to live fully while dying. This book should be required reading for all medical professionals.
  • Literally takes your breath away
    By Reba and Zoey
    I never knew you could be overwhelmed by both a persons life and a book at the same time - they became one in the same. There are no words or comments I can adequately write to express how completely consuming this book is. Tonight, I will start to read it all over again.
  • A profound piece of literature
    By a.lassan.m
    An amazing, emotional, inspirational read. I am glad I came across this book. Definitely one of the best books I have read so far. A must read. Highly recommend.
  • When Breath Becomes Air
    By NiaReads14
    I loved this book! I bought this book to read on an airplane and read it in a day! This book made me think and provided great insight to many things, I can’t list them all. This book makes you think and question what it means to be a patient, a doctor (for me a future PA, hopefully),what it means to be human, and what it means to be mortal. I feel inspired to continue to prepare myself and pursue not perfection, but the asymptote!! Dr. Kalanithi truly was an exceptional person and I just want to say thank you to the people that allowed his work to come into fruition because you gave me an opportunity to know him and in he process know a little more about myself.
  • Emotional and inspiring
    By ROSHIV
    Couldn’t put the book down! What an emotional and inspiring story to stare adversity in its face and still live with a smile on his face.
