The Day I Ceased to Being: Enigmatic Life of a Research Scholar by Kamal Malaker is a narrative autobiographical manuscript that covers Kamal’s education, career, and challenges in the medical profession as an internationally acclaimed and respected oncologist. While working in an African equatorial jungle, Malaker experienced life in a third world-country and found himself in a desperate situation after a vehicle accident, followed by a fall from a make-shift ladder. A near-drowning incident and encountering a python were no match for Malaker’s determination to remain positive. An educational trip to England added credibility to Malaker’s reputation and began a whole new adventure for him.
What an interesting memoir! Kamal Malaker has written an intriguing story of his life experiences, and I enjoyed every minute of reading it. When Kamal received his Ph.D. degree from the University of London and the Imperial College, his emotional response was unexpected and brutally honest – a real eye-opener. I would recommend The Day I Ceased to Being to every young person who is considering a medical career, not only to learn from Kamal’s story but also because the book is beautifully written, and I admire Kamal’s use of the English language. The story flows well, makes for a relaxed, comfortable read, and is filled with many life lessons. “Our dreams, our resolve, our hard work, sleepless nights, failures after failures, and getting off track of our resolve are all part of destiny as is to be.”
