Important note: This is a book summary of Being Mortal by Atul Gawande and is not the original book.
In the book, Gawande is able to build a narrative through the collection of experiences that leads to the conclusion that as we perceive ourselves as closer to death, our thoughts on mortality transform our goals and values to that of simpler things. Through a collection of insights, statistics, and stories, Gawande argues on how we should focus less on prolonging life and more on how we can make it more meaningful.
This audiobook summarizes the original in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate and imbibe the original work by Gawande. This audiobook is not meant to replace the original book but to serve as a companion to it.
