When Breath Becomes Air
Comments and mentions from HN threads:
Ask HN: Books you read in 2016?
yla92: Found this book through the author's essay (basically, an abstract from the book) in NY Times. I love it. It is the story about the life of the neurosurgeon who was battling with his cancer.
shazam: Highly recommended, but come prepared
chrisherd: Haunting, beautiful, moving and perfect. Life is surprising and we can’t legislate for the things that are thrust upon us.
