    Sherwin B. Nuland, MD, was Clinical Professor of Surgery at Yale University until his retirement in 2009, though he continues to teach Biomedical Ethics and Medical History to Yale undergraduates, and serve the university in various capacities. He won the National Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Book Critics Circle Award when this book was initially published. In hardcover and paperback,How We Die was on the New York Times bestseller list for a total of thirty-four weeks, and has been translated into twenty-nine languages. Dr. Nuland and his family live in Connecticut.

    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.
