In his landmark book How We Die, Sherwin B. Nuland profoundly altered our perception of the end of life. Now, in THE ART OF AGING, Dr. Nuland steps back to explore the impact of aging on our minds and bodies, strivings and relationships. Melding a scientist’s passion for truth with a humanist’s understanding of the heart and soul, Nuland has created a wise, frank, and inspiring audiobook about the ultimate stage of life’s journey. Growing old, Nuland teaches us, is not a disease but an art–and for those who practice it well, it can bring extraordinary rewards. “I’m taking the journey even while I describe it,” writes Nuland. Drawing on his own life and work, as well as the lives of friends both famous and not, Nuland portrays the astonishing variability of the aging experience. Faith and inner strength, the deepening of personal relationships, the realization that career does not define identity, the acceptance that some goals will remain unaccomplished–these are among the secrets of those who age well. Reflecting the wisdom of a long lifetime, THE ART OF AGING is a work of luminous insight, unflinching candor, and profound compassion. Download and start listening now!
