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.

Industry Reviews

"Eloquent and uncommonly moving... Nuland writes with unsentimental passion."- Time

"Engrossing... We are in the hands of a remarkable portraitist whose cultivated thought... quietly and informatively instructs and advises us on a subject of universal concern."- The New York Times Book Review

"Nuland's work acknowledges, with unmatched clarity, the harsh realities of how life departs... There is compassion, and often wisdom, in every page."- San Francisco Examiner

"Nuland combines the clinical eye of a physician with... emotional and philosophical reflectiveness."- Newsday
