"My favorite read of 2016 is When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, a memoir about a thirty-six year-old brilliant neurosurgeon, who one day he was a doctor treating patients and the next day he was a patient being treated for stage lV lung cancer. The struggles and the pain he endured during his final days gave him a clearer understanding of doctors and patients relationships and of his approaching mortality. It is a heartbreaking story and it served as a reminder to me that life is not always fair. Paul died before finishing writing his book. The book was published in January 2016 and was on the NYT Bestsellers list"
