READING: Op zesendertigjarige leeftijd wordt de briljante en ambitieuze neurochirurg Paul Kalanithi gediagnosticeerd met stadium IV longkanker. Van de ene op de andere dag verandert hij van een arts die levens redt in een patiënt die moet vechten voor zijn eigen leven. De laatste 22 maanden van zijn leven besluit hij zijn grote ambitie waar te maken: een meesterlijk boek schrijven over zijn bijzondere levensloop. Wat maakt het leven nog de moeite waard als je de dood in de ogen kijkt? Wat doe je als al je dromen over een toekomst plaats moeten maken voor een miserabel noodlot? Wat betekent het om een kind te krijgen en nieuw leven op aarde te zetten terwijl je eigen leven langzaam wegebt? Paul Kalanithi stierf in maart 2015, terwijl hij de laatste hand legde aan zijn memoires. Zijn wijze observaties en rijke inzichten in het leven zijn hartverscheurend. Als adem vervliegt is een onvergetelijk boek over een naderend einde en de relatie tussen arts en patiënt van een begenadigd schrijver, die helaas beide rollen moest vervullen.

READING: #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST • This inspiring, exquisitely observed memoir finds hope and beauty in the face of insurmountable odds as an idealistic young neurosurgeon attempts to answer the question What makes a life worth living? NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • People • NPR • The Washington Post • Slate • Harper’s Bazaar • Esquire • Time Out New York • Publishers Weekly • BookPage Finalist for the PEN Center USA Literary Award in Creative Nonfiction and the Books for a Better Life Award in Inspirational Memoir At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve medical student “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life” into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality. What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir. Paul Kalanithi died in March 2015, while working on this book, yet his words live on as a guide and a gift to us all. “I began to realize that coming face to face with my own mortality, in a sense, had changed nothing and everything,” he wrote. “Seven words from Samuel Beckett began to repeat in my head: ‘I can’t go on. I’ll go on.’” When Breath Becomes Air is an unforgettable, life-affirming reflection on the challenge of facing death and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a brilliant writer who became both. Praise for When Breath Becomes Air “I guarantee that finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option. . . . Part of this book’s tremendous impact comes from the obvious fact that its author was such a brilliant polymath. And part comes from the way he conveys what happened to him—passionately working and striving, deferring gratification, waiting to live, learning to die—so well.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times “An emotional investment well worth making: a moving and thoughtful memoir of family, medicine and literature. It is, despite its grim undertone, accidentally inspiring.”—The Washington Post “Possesses the gravity and wisdom of an ancient Greek tragedy . . . [Kalanithi] delivers his chronicle in austere, beautiful prose. The book brims with insightful reflections on mortality that are especially poignant coming from a trained physician familiar with what lies ahead.”—The Boston Globe “Devastating and spectacular . . . [Kalanithi] is so likeable, so relatable, and so humble, that you become immersed in his world and forget where it’s all heading.”—USA Today

READING: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi | Summary & Analysis Preview: When Breath Becomes Air is a memoir about Paul Kalanithi’s experiences as a doctor and as a terminally ill patient. The book discusses Kalanithi’s lifelong fascination with questions of human biology, mortality, and meaning. It then examines how these questions are intensified by the author’s own confrontation with lung cancer, sickness, and death. Kalanithi’s father was a doctor from New York City; his mother was from India. The family moved to Kingman, Arizona, so that his father could pursue his medical career when Paul was young. His father worked long hours and was rarely home, which convinced young Paul that the last thing he wanted to do was to become a doctor himself. Paul’s mother was concerned about the weak school system in Kingman, and so crafted a lengthy list of literary classics which she made Paul and his brothers read.

READING: Bij de dramatische bevalling van de tweelingbroers Marion en Shiva overlijdt hun moeder, zuster Mary Joseph Praise, in het kraambed. Niemand in het missiehospitaal wist van Mary s zwangerschap. Zelfs niet de vermoedelijke vader, dokter Stone. Hij vlucht de operatiekamer uit en verdwijnt spoorloos. Een bevriend artsenstel ontfermt zich met liefde over de twee jongetjes. Marion en Shiva groeien op in het Ethiopië van de jaren zeventig, dat wordt geteisterd door een revolutie die iedereen in de spiraal van geweld en verraad mee sleurt. Toch is het niet de politieke situatie maar hun gedeelde passie voor dezelfde vrouw waardoor de broers tegenover elkaar komen te staan. Marion ontvlucht zijn land. Jaren later slaat het noodlot toe en komt zijn leven in handen te liggen van de twee mannen die hij het minst vertrouwt: zijn verdwenen vader en zijn broer Shiva. Blijken ze in staat de pijn en het verdriet uit het verleden te overwinnen en oude wonden te helen? Het antwoord leidt niet alleen tot het dramatische hoogtepunt van De heelmeesters, maar ook tot een onverwachte ontdekking over de laatste dagen van hun moeder en geliefde, zuster Mary Praise. De heelmeesters is het romandebuut van Abraham Verghese. Het verhaal beweegt zich tussen twee continenten, en bestrijkt de levens van de tweelingbroers Marion en Shiva, die hun leven lang de reden zoeken dat hun vader hen in de steek heeft gelaten. De heelmeesters is een indrukwekkend en menselijk verhaal vol verbeeldingskracht dat de lezer diep raakt. Een onvergetelijk portret van twee broers, een ode aan de geneeskunst en een familiesaga over vaders en zonen, macht en compassie, vertrouwen en verraad.

READING: This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic lung cancer at the age of thirty-six, just nearing his ten-year mark as a neurosurgeon in training. At one moment, he was a doctor treating patients and the next, he was a patient needing doctors. His diagnosis changed everything, including the future that he and his wife, Lucy, had envisioned. When Breath Becomes Air is Kalanithi's account of his transition from being a young medical student fixated on answering the profound question about what makes one's life meaningful in spite of the certainty of death, to a trained neurosurgeon in charge of one's source of identity—the human brain, and ultimately to a man welcomed to fatherhood as well as to the realization of his mortality. What makes life worthwhile when death is but an inevitability? How will you move forward when the future you have imagined crumbles into an impasse? Why bring new life into the world when your own is slipping right between your fingers? These are only some of the thought-provoking questions Kalanithi presents in this masterfully written memoir. Paul Kalanithi passed away on March 9, 2015. Though unfinished, When Breath Becomes Air continues to serve as a guide to those who have lost their way. It is the reflection of a brave and dignified man—once a doctor, then a patient—who continued to affirm life even in the face of death. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

ISBN 9789028442337
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Trauma en herstel, in 1992 voor het eerst gepubliceerd, is nog altijd hét boek over traumatische gebeurtenissen en de slachtoffers daarvan. Judith Herman stelt in dit baanbrekende werk dat psychologische trauma's alleen begrepen kunnen worden in hun sociale context. Uitgaande van haar eigen onderzoek naar incest en de uitgebreide literatuur over oorlogsveteranen en slachtoffers van terreur, trekt ze verrassende parellellen tussen particulier geweld, zoals kindermishandeling, en politiek geweld, bijvoorbeeld oorlog. Trauma en herstel is een essentieel boek voor iedereen die wil begrijpen hoe trauma's genezen kunnen worden en hoe we helen. Voor deze uitgave heeft Judith Herman een uitgebreid nieuw nawoord geschreven, waarin ze laat zien wat er in haar vakgebied is veranderd en wat er niet is veranderd in de ruim twee decennia sinds de publicatie van haar boek. 'Dit onmisbare boek maakt duidelijk dat het herinneren en vertellen van de waarheid over verschrikkelijke gebeurtenissen voorwaarden zijn voor het herstel van de openbare orde en voor de genezing van individuele slachtoffers.' The New York Times
