Being Mortal: by Atul Gawande | Conversation Starters

Being Mortal, Atul Gawande's latest medical book, tackles the difficult task of talking about topics of mortality and death. Gawande presents readers with his own experiences observing people in end-of-life care. He shows readers what end-of-life care is like in nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living homes, and hospice. He shows readers the downfall of a medical system that is solely focused on keeping the patient alive rather than focusing on their quality of life. Gawande gives readers a glimpse into what end-of-life care is like and the difficult decisions that must be made during this time through real-life stories of individuals and their families facing end-of-life care. Being Mortal became the basis for a "Frontline" documentary on the television network PBS in 2015. It received a longlist nomination for the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction in 2014.
