‘Never before has ageing been such an important topic. For, even as medical advances push the boundaries of survival further each year, we have become profoundly detached from the reality of being mortal. Here, Atul Gawande outlines a story that crosses the globe, as he explores the modern experience of mortality – what it’s like to get old and die, how medicine has changed this and how it hasn’t, where our ideas about death have gone wrong. The systems that we have put in place to manage our mortality are manifestly failing; but as Gawande reveals, it doesn’t have to be this way.’
