Being Mortal a book that helps you make decisions during the aging process

Being Mortal by Atul Gawande was eye opening.  He summarizes the options available for where aging people can live.  He gives the advantages and disadvantages of each option.  He reviews quality of life and does an excellent job showing that this is different for different people.  There are questions given to help decide the quality of life you would like to have at the end of life.  It is a well written book and talks about issues we don’t like to face in our society.  He does this in a practical and down to earth manner. I would recommend everyone read this book.
