A beautifully written book about kindness, mortality, the people we meet and how we are shaped as humans. The first part of the book is written from the authors experience of training and practising as a Neurosurgeon, the second part is being a patient. You will not forget this book, I was still thinking about it weeks after finishing reading. Highly recommended.
