Klanithi's unique intellect and insight shaped his reader through this sensitive memoir of life approaching death. A talented literature major turned neurosurgeon, K. finds himself with stage IV lung cancer. Forced to become a patient while being a doctor, it is his philosophically questioning mind we fall in love with. Love read by a lovely man. ~ Reviewed by Shantia Mayer

Everyone should read this book if we are to live well and survive as a species. Dr. Gawande not only points out what is wrong with health care as it relates to aging, he demonstrates that there are many (including doctors) who are trying to advocate for positive change. My 94 year old friend recommended this to me because it also asks the question... "What makes life worth living?". The most important book of the year and a fascinating read. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank

Offit provides scientific research to show how people pushing alternative medicines have taken advantage of the public's desperation for "natural" cures, but provide outrageously expensive, untested, unregulated, and often dangerous treatments. He explains that medicine has been hijacked by the media and celebrities claim to know better than doctors. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli
