Olivier Sacks

Why we love it: As neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks approaches death, he reflects on his life and shows how a grateful outlook can help us deal with the worst that can happen.

From page 20:
I cannot pretend I am without fear. But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved; I have been given much and I have given something in return; I have read and traveled and thought and written.
