Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End/Atul Gawande/282 pgs.
Dr. Gawande, a practicing physician and surgeon, discusses how the improvements in modern medicine impacts the growing elderly population and their quality of life. It's a moving book which should be read by baby boomers and all medical professionals. It has the reader thinking about the difference between being kept alive and the quality of living. Dr. Gawande has experienced this enigma in his practice and his personal life. It's eye opening book, a difficult read at times, but highly recommended!
