Being Mortal, as we are...





This book is truly remarkable. It should help any of us to approach end-of-life matters in a better-informed, more constructive way. And although some of it is not easy reading - he really wants us to look ahead and consider our declining years, instead of whistling in the dark and pretending we're immortal - it is a life-enhancing book. Atul Gawande gave this year's Reith Lectures, "The Future of Medicine,"on BBC Radio 4, still available on iPlayer of course, under "Reith Lectures."
