In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can improve not only life but also the process of its ending. Gawande asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end.
Gawande is the author of The Checklist Manifesto, Better, and Complications. He is also a MacArthur Fellow, a general surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and a staff writer at The New Yorker.
