Like it or not we all are. Mortal that is. Not everything is curable despite the advances of modern medicine. Sometimes the cure is worse than the condition and comes at the cost of quality of life. Being mortal discusses questions that will face us all sooner or later. It also challenges the trends in medicine today and suggests an alternative to the frightening picture many of us dread of a long sad ending in a cold clinical institution. Insightful, personal and deeply moving.
