In Awe of Being Human: A Doctor’s Stories from the Edge of Life and Death relates deeply moving accounts of the author’s patients as they grapple with serious health challenges, while also describing the soul-stretching experiences of the physicians who seek to help them. Unfolding amidst the fascinating daily life of a busy metropolitan hospital, these stories convey a powerful sense of the mystery and miracle of human existence.

“These luminous stories show how doctors and patients alike step forward to meet the most daunting challenges life can bring, demonstrating beautifully what it means to be human. Read this book – it will nourish your soul!”
Andrew Weil, M.D.
