Is it medicine's job to keep us alive? Or is it well-being that really matters? I don't want to spend my dying days in a nursing home in a bed with rails that hold me in or tied into a wheelchair. All that does is prolong my dying, not help me really live as I want to live. Gawande argues that quality of life is the desired goal. I heard about this book in one book club and plan to suggest it to my other book discussion group.Claire @ The Captive Reader and Linda @ Silly Little Mischief that encourages us to share the names of books we checked out of the library. See what others got this week.
