Ser mortal book cover
Ser mortal
La medicina y lo que importa al final (Ensayo)
Atul Gawande - 2014-10-07
Calificación de Goodreads
La medicina ha triunfado en nuestro tiempo y ha convertido los terribles peligros del parto, de las heridas y las enfermedades en problemas manejables. Pero cuando se trata de las realidades inevitables del envejecimiento y la muerte, lo que hace la medicina es, a menudo, lo contrario de lo que debería hacer. Atul Gawande, cirujano en ejercicio, pasa revista a las limitaciones e incapacidades de la medicina cuando se avecina la muerte. Y descubre cómo se pueden hacer mejor las cosas. «Creemos que la medicina consiste en garantizar la salud y la supervivencia. Pero en realidad, es mucho más que eso. Porque quienes sufren una enfermedad grave tienen otras prioridades, al margen de prolongar su vida. Entre sus principales preocupaciones figuran evitar el sufrimiento, estrechar los lazos con sus familiares y amigos, estar mentalmente conscientes, no ser una carga para los demás y llegar a tener la sensación de que su vida está completa. La gente quiere compartir sus recuerdos, transmitir su sabiduría y sus objetos personales, arreglar las relaciones, establecer sus legados y asegurarse de que las personas que deja atrás van a estar bien. Nuestro sistema de atención sanitaria tecnológica ha fracasado totalmente a la hora de satisfacer esas necesidades.» Ser mortal, un libro apasionante y humano, muestra que la meta no es una buena muerte sino una buena vida de principio a fin. Y nos enseña cómo asegurarnos de que nunca sacrificaremos lo que de verdad le importa a la gente.

Halfway through @Atul_Gawande's Being Mortal. It's an essential, important and deep book. Also just finished @morganhousel's Psychology Of Money. Haven't read a novel in about a month.      fuente

Ever since I read @brinicio’s stunningly brilliant book Grandmaster, I’ve been a complete Magnus fan. Watched the documentaries. Read the articles. I can’t see him doing this unless he *knows*.      fuente

Paris in the Present Tense
A Novel
Mark Helprin - 2017-10-03
Calificación de Goodreads
A 74-year-old cellist and war veteran living in present-day Paris navigates the city's charms and challenges, including violent unrest and memories of the Holocaust. Jules Lacour must reconcile his duties to the past with his desires for a rich present life filled with love and music, all while facing unexpected hurdles such as fraud and violence. Against the stunning backdrop of Paris, Helprin weaves a poetic and emotional story of life, memory, and art.
Brian Koppelman
Certain writers fall out of favor for certain reasons, often having little to do with the work itself. In that vein, let me recommend Mark Helprin, maybe the most beautiful American prose stylist of his age. Paris In The Present Tense is a glorious novel. Writers: read this book.      fuente

@luckyirishmn There's a novel that I read after Rounders that I love, called King Of A Small World, by Rick Bennett. It is hard to find. But wonderful. The books by Doyle Brunson and TJ Cloutier and old school tales of travel and poker, also Bobby Baldwin's Tales Out Of Tulsa.      fuente
