From the TALK series, Dearly Beloved
Discussion Leader: Miranda Ericsson

Our culture idealizes youth. People are so busy trying to look, act, or feel younger that we ignore the fact of our aging. Being Mortal offers a brutally honest truth: we will all someday die. Dr. Gawande writes compassionately and engagingly about the sensitive topic of death and dying. He argues that our medicalization of aging and dying merely prolongs life without regard to whether or not it is enjoyable.
