The moral philosophy of death with the mechanics of dying . . . author Sherwin Nuland brings us, and keeps us, with the reality that we all have a limited time here on earth and death in a myraid of forms follows. How we handle death, and how we chose to go on, can make or break us.

An excellent read, even thogh it is a subject none likes to think of.
For some of us it can help to prepare for the near future.
