Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End challenges our medical system to refocus its approach to aging, terminal illness, and death and dying. According to Atual Gawande, medical professionals’ job is not to ensure health and survival but to enable well-being. Atul Gawande’s powerful presence on the page, his intimate and detailed vignettes, his humble authenticity, and his personal motivation to write this book make this a must read.
