Goodreads Review How We Die

How We Die: Reflections of Life's Final ChapterHow We Die: Reflections of Life’s Final Chapter by Sherwin B. Nuland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Each chapter details a different death – Alzheimer’s, AIDS, Cancer, Suicide, etc. The author is a doctor so he really gets into the medical terminology and makes it accessible to the layperson.

“It is also the recognition that the real event taking place at the end of our life is our death, not the attempts to prevent it. We have somehow been so taken up with the wonders of modern science that our society puts the emphasis in the wrong place.”

Well written and intense.
