Review - Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters In the End by Atul Gawande

Assalamualaikum and good day!

Genre : Non Fiction, Health > Medical, Science
Edition : Paperback, by Metropolitan Books
Pages : 282 pages
Goodreads Ratings : 4.39 ☆
My Ratings : 4.3 ☆

This is the first book on Health and Medical I read and it fears me at first for any jargon and scientific terms I do not understand but no such in this book. It is carefully explained and it is made sure the readers are not left googling on medical terms.

It is a good read for people who care for the elderly, even if you do not have care any elderly, it is some kind of preparation for yourself. Well, everyone is getting old. But reading this, getting old is scary. It cringe me every time I read on what could happen if this and this occur to you. It's a how-to book. For those who care for the elderly or terminally sick person, it gives you courage and what to do sort of solutions. Not many people knows what to do when it comes to such matter.

I recommend this book because it is full of information and guides on (if ever you face such situation, I hope we not) what sort of question to ask a doctor, where to seek help and such.
