How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter
Sherwin B. Nuland

What actually happens during "clinical death"? Why do we age, and what happens to the body? This National Book Award winner combines erudition and eloquence in a refreshingly unsentimental look at the processes of death. A distinguished surgeon and gifted writer, Nuland illuminates the mechanisms of cancer, heart attack, AIDS, and Alzheimer's disease with precision and compassionate awareness. Particularly recommended for anyone in a position to explain these difficult processes to others.
