Each books is an exact facsimile of the exceedingly rare original works, often the very first edition. Nothing is changed or altered from the original. This modern classic and winner of the National Book Award should now be added to your Library. Using his experience as surgeon, professor of surgery, historian of medicine, and writer, Dr. Nuland, brings into focus a subject long avoided by physicians and laypeople alike, one that makes most of us uncomfortable. Yet try as we might to avoid it, he reminds us, we can never, in this case, escape it. In HOW WE DIE, Dr. Nuland leads us to a better and deeper knowledge and understanding of death through what Dr. Oliver Sacks describes as "a series of portraits or analyses, as powerful and sensitive, and unsparing and unsentimental, as anything I have ever read. " Dr. Jeremiah Barondess, President of the New York Academy of Medicine, wrote that "Dr. Nuland offers important and insightful vignettes that are both moving and hopeful. " Dr. James P. Nolan, President of the Association of Professors of Medicine, stated that "It is a book that all physicians and medical students should have in their library.
