When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

Sometimes, words are incapable of, and insufficient for describing the thoughts I have in my mind.
Writing about this book now is such an occasion. Simply because I don't have a talent for literature. 

Paul Kalanithi did. This book is a testament to his abilities to express his deep thoughts on "living a meaningful life" in a very lucid and elegant style.

This audiobook from Audible is one of the best I've listened to. A deeply touching life story written by this courageous and caring young physician, husband and father. Beautifully narrated by Sunil Malhotra and my favourite Cassandra Campbell.  

One of the poems he quotes in the book. 

"Caelica 83" by Baron Brooke Fulke Greville

You that seek what life is in death, 
Now find it air that once was breath. 
New names unknown, old names gone: 
Till time end bodies, but souls none.
            Reader! then make time, while you be,
            But steps to your eternity.
