How we die : reflections on life's final chapter by Sherwin B Nuland( Book )
37 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,434 libraries worldwide
"There is a vast literature on death and dying, but there are few reliable accounts of the ways in which we die. The intimate account of how various diseases take away life, offered in How We Die, is not meant to prompt horror or terror but to demythologize the process of dying to help us rid ourselves of that fear of the terra incognita." "Though the avenues of death - AIDS, cancer, heart attack, Alzheimer's, accident, and stroke - are common, each of us will die in a way different from any that has gone before. Each one of death's diverse appearances is as distinctive as that singular face we each show during our lives. Behind each death is a story." "In How We Die, Sherwin B. Nuland, a surgeon and teacher of medicine, tells some stories of dying that reveal not only why someone dies but how. He offers a portrait of the experience of dying that makes clear the choices that can be made to allow each of us his or her own death."--Jacket

The art of aging : a doctor's prescription for well-being by Sherwin B Nuland( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,543 libraries worldwide
Melding a scientist's passion for truth with a humanist's understanding of the heart and soul, professor of surgery Nuland explores the impact of aging on our minds and bodies, strivings and relationships. The onset of aging can be so gradual that we are often surprised to find that one day it is fully upon us. The changes to the senses, appearance, reflexes, physical endurance, and sexual appetites are undeniable--and rarely welcome--and yet, as Dr. Nuland shows, getting older has its surprising blessings. Age concentrates not only the mind, but the body's energies, leading many to new sources of creativity, perception, and spiritual intensity. Growing old, Nuland teaches us, is not a disease but an art--and for those who practice it well, it can bring extraordinary rewards. Nuland also examines the latest research into extending life and the scientists who are pursuing it.--From publisher description
