Product Description

'How We Die is a classic of medical writing. It’s at once scientific and accessible, precise and philosophical, elegant and blunt. Sherwin Nuland introduced a new kind of writing with this book, and his insights sparkle as much now as they did twenty-five years ago. They address not only how we die, but also how we can live' Andrew Solomon25 years ago Sherwin B. Nuland published his monumental book How We Die - and it was to change the course of medical writing forever. In 2019 Vintage are reissuing the book for a new generation. Includes a foreword by Paul Kalanithi, author of When Breath Becomes Air, written before Paul died for the Paris Review.We are petitioning many of the great medical writers for their thoughts of this medical classic, and we hope to have many new quotes from: Henry Marsh, Atul Gawande, Siddhartha Mukherjee, Abraham Verghese, Adam Kay, Christie Watson, Matt Haig, Stephen Grosz, Gabriel Weston, Julia Samuel, Malcolm Gladwell and Sheri Fink

Sherwin Nuland was a well-known surgeon in the US - at the top of his profession. He was the author of The Doctors, which explores the ethics of the medical world, How We Die, a bestseller in America and Britain and The Wisdom of the Body.

Dr. Sherwin B. Nuland drew on more than 35 years in medicine and a childhood buffeted by illness in writing How We Die, an award-winning book that sought to dispel the notion of death with dignity and fuelled a national conversation about end-of-life decisions. He died in March 2014 at his home in Hamden, CT.

What happens to us as we die? Discover the answers in this exclusive 25th anniversary edition of Sherwin B Nuland’s seminal book

With a foreword by Paul Kalanithi, bestselling author of When Breath Becomes Air.


There are many books intended to help people deal with the trauma of bereavement, but few which explore the reality of death itself. Sherwin B. Nuland - with over thirty years' experience as a surgeon - explains in detail the processes which take place in the body and strips away many illusions about death. The result is a unique and compelling book, addressing the one final fact that all of us must confront.

'I don't know of any writer or scientist who has shown us the face of death as clearly, honestly and compassionately as Sherwin Nuland does here' James Gleick, author of Chaos

How We Die is a classic of medical writing. It’s at once scientific and accessible, precise and philosophical, elegant and blunt. Sherwin Nuland introduced a new kind of writing with this book, and his insights sparkle as much now as they did twenty-five years ago. They address not only how we die, but also how we can live.How We Die teaches and gives us the courage to come to terms with our own death. As difficult as the facts may be, it shows us they are less frightening than our imagination. It is a book that should be read by all.
