When Breath Becomes Air

Paul Kalanithi shakes the fabric of our limited reality by peering into the world of death. His life, this book, conquers every sensation of the reader. At the pinnacle of success by nearly every measure, he will fall. He falls by succumbing to death, but never does he fail. His graceful personality and introverted sensation challenges the manner in which each reader understands death.

Paul was more than his accolades, his Yale, Cambridge and Stanford education; his soul was grander than academics and medicine, and yet he infused these realms with a unique style.

It is as if Paul belonged in a different era, for his wisdom, clarity and understanding of life is Aristotelian; as he looks death right in the eye, his entire life takes on a form we can barely fathom. Seldom will this world encounter an individual exemplifying the extraordinary qualities Paul encapsulated. I never me this man, but he is missed.
