Based on the thousands of 5 star reviews, and the recommendations of a couple friends, I picked this up. I was mostly disappointed.
I didn’t find the subject matter either profound or even particularly interesting. It’s a fairly matter-of-fact biography of the author, his youth, how he came to practice medicine, and his cancer diagnosis and treatment. Nothing in his writing or his story drew me in or sparked much interest or emotion. So much could have been done with this story, but wasn’t. There’s just no “there” there. Few, if any, life lessons, insights, or gut-wrenching emotional passages.
The best part of the book (and the most compellingly written as well) was the epilogue by the author’s widow, which I thought was ironic given all the gushing reviews of this book and the author.
Recommendation: there’s very little to draw a reader in, and even less in terms of relatability, emotion, and insight. Skip it.
