Summary
"Why does the knowledge of having a life-threatening illness ennoble some people, yet defeat others? How can we apply to our own lives the lessons learned during the extraordinary time? Groopman, an eminent physician, explores these central human questions through portraits of eight patients who have gazed into the face of death." -- Dust jacket
