Product Description

Attempting to demythologize the process of dying, Nuland, a distinguished surgeon, explores how we shall die. Through particular stories of dying - of patients, and of his own family - he examines the seven most common roads to death: old age, cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer's, accidents, heart disease, and strokes, revealing the facets of death's multiplicity.
