The New York Times number-one best seller. At the age of 36, on the verge of completing a decade's training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.

Journey of Paul is inspiring and sad at the same time. Poignant tale of a man who could have been so much more . However this is not a book to lament a journey cut short. It is a story of a man who loved life. He perhaps ended up living more than what many would who outlive him.
