BEING MORTAL: MEDICINE AND WHAT MATTERS IN THE END
By Dr. Atul Gawande

Gawande, a surgeon and New Yorker staff writer, asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end. Reviewed by Chris Rush, who is retired after a lengthy career with New York State in health care planning and financing, with a particular focus on long term care and the development of non- institutional alternatives to nursing homes.
