Being Mortal

In this award-winning book by Atul Gawande, surgeon, writer, and Harvard professor Atul Gawande addresses the question:  how can medicine not only improve life but also the process of its ending?   Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal provides “a moving and clear-eyed look at aging and death in our society, and at the harms we do in turning it into a medical problem, rather than a human one.”  (The New York Review of Books)
