Book of when a breast becomes heir by Paul Callan EB. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars it's actually the first non-fiction book that I've read like for fun because I wanted to and not like for school so I was just proud of myself. For that and since I loved it so much, I will definitely keep my mind open to more nonfiction books. Because this book actually had a really huge impact on me.
This book is by Paul Cullen easy and he was a neurosurgeon but at the age of 36 he was diagnosed with a lung cancer and he passed away in 2015. So this is kind of his life story about why he chose to be a physician to be a neurosurgeon and his and how his life changed when he was diagnosed with cancer. So it is a very serious book but the way Paul writes the book is just so beautiful gives it a little bit of lightheartedness he is funny his story.
Is just it's inspiring and it's thought-provoking its insightful its poignant it's just beautiful so we do. Follow him from the age of a child he talks about his childhood and how his mother always wanted him to read she really emphasized the importance of reading and he read a lot of classics and so he's really throughout his life has always been kind of torn between literature and science which I can relate to do an extent.
Um obviously I love reading and have a passion for literature but I'm also in pharmacy school so I love science and medical field and all of that so I could relate to that part of it and I just thought it was very interesting and fascinating how he talked about it all when he gets into medical school and all of that he talks a lot about how doctors treat patients and the doctor to patient relationship which I found to be really really.
So you know as a pharmacist we may not deal with patients in the same way that doctors do but there are a lot of pharmacists that work in hospitals and I mean I consider working in a retail pharmacy. When you're you know dispensing medicine to people I consider them patients and so he had a lot of very important points when it comes to that. And I was also really eye-opening because then he himself becomes a patient and he talks about that flip and how he's a doctor and he's treated people with cancer but now he's a patient that has cancer is he. Supposed to treat himself or is he specific back and let other doctors do it it just.
Really really a fascinating discussion obviously it's sad because he does talk about death a lot he talks about life and death throughout his entire life he had this passion for exploring the meaning of life and gaining knowledge and so he does talk a lot about what does it mean to be alive science. You know says that humans are animals were organisms what makes us think the way we do, and so that's partially why he went into science. He felt like he needed to know science and know neurosurgery to be even begin to understand how humans works basically at the end his wife writes an epilogue talking about his last days and after he passed away and yeah I did shed some tears.
It is a sad story but I wouldn't let that significantly deter you which is such a beautiful story and there's just so many important points and impactful points that he makes and just makes you think it's a wonderful story and I don't know how else to describe it I definitely want to reread this ebook it's a great story to get lost in and to think about and just keep your mind open but if you have any at least mild interest in this book I would highly recommend picking it up if you are in the medical field at all you definitely need to read this book so yeah I am so happy that I read this.
