Touching. A real piece of Art... nothing else to say
A MUST READ
This novel reveals so much about life in the face of death. It reveals the deep thought memories of a man going through different stages of life; choosing a profession, chasing it with zeal and purpose, pushing past the barries of death to present wisdom to all who read this book. Wisdom that came through the experience of mortality, letting us know that we don’t have to cave underneath the weight of certain death, but that we can forge a new life replete with love, meaning, and purpose. This is an amazing book. Highly recommend it for everyone, even more so to those who are in the field of medicine (don’t just choose a professional route because of your comfort, do so to make an impact on the lives of the people you serve.)

Life is very short - and it can all change without notice. Choose to embrace it.
This book is a must read!! So insightful, sad and comforting at the same time. May Paul's legacy live on.
I like to read the first few sentences of a book before I buy it; when I came across this book in Barnes & Noble, I had read nearly 20 pages before I realized it.
This book was really awesome and very deep! I could read it a million times over. And I can relate to this book which makes it even better.

This book on his dying experience will change your living experience. Already read it 3 times, and I learn something new each time. Thank you Dr. K for touching my life!!
Finally a book worth reading!
Excellent in all phases. It was a pleasure to reads such an intelligent and well written book about a brave man facing what we all will eventually face -our deaths. I believe I will remember this book forever. Thank you Paul and Lucy.

I purchased this book on a whim. The title struck me with a desire to witness the words between its pages. I am so glad I made the purchase. This book is written beautifully. From beginning to end I was interested in what the author had to say. His love for his wife and his profession touched me, his desire to write about his fate moved me, and his courageous soul engulfed me into his book.
