When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
This memoir is very moving—it is a sad story of a 36-year-old neurosurgeon diagnosed with terminal cancer. I was personally touched by his story, as I have a close friend going through a similar experience. Although you’ll need lots of tissues reading it, you will find this book to be very inspiring.
