New Edition : With a new chapter addressing contemporary issues in end-of-life care

A runaway bestseller and National Book Award winner, Sherwin Nuland's How We Die has become the definitive text on perhaps the single most universal human concern: death.  This new edition includes an all-embracing and incisive afterword that examines the current state of health care and our relationship with life as it approaches its terminus.  It also discusses how we can take control of our own final days and those of our loved ones.

Shewin Nuland's masterful How We Die is even more relevant than when it was first published.

What we understand about our own bodies and how it functions,is the least thing we understand. We are more apt to want to find out more about famous peoples lives or world events than we are about the intricacies of the human body. This is a good read. One is bound to come away with a better knowledge and perhaps less fear.
