A courageous, life-changing memoir that teaches us to apply the lessons learned by those nearing their death to our own life. After too many years of unfulfilling work, Bronnie Ware began searching for a job with meaning. Despite having no formal qualifications or experience, she found herself working in palliative care. During the time she spent tending to the needs of those who were dying, Bronnie's life was transformed.

I expected I would learn something about life from this book given its rating. Something in the lines of crucial but not so self evident life lessons that one might find otherwise only at the end of it all.
What I got was uninteresting life story of a person working with dying people. Lessons I got were basic principles of living life as a human. Striving for happiness by means of personal responsibility, honesty and understanding of the world around us. All that while suggesting there's a dichotomy between work or money and happiness. Everyone needs to find their own balance.

The book gives good insight into atrocities done by ISIS. It also shows a life and a mindset of simple life Yazidi people. The mindset of ignorance (the emerging presence of enemy in the region) and helplessness (blaming other parties for not being helped).

It's a good story, only with a little bit too much suffering at times. Personally I like more positive stories. Was there a happy ending? I won't tell :)
