Art of Aging

Discussion of a new book The Art of Aging: A Doctor's Prescription for Well-Being by Sherwin B. Nuland


Greetings,

Here is a new book, just published:

The Art of Aging:
A Doctor's Prescription for Well-Being

by Sherwin B. Nuland


The book says:

“For reasons that are pragmatic, scientific, demographic, economic, political, social, emotional and secularly spiritual, I am committed to the notion that both individual fulfillment and the ecological balance of life on this planet are best served by dying when our inherent biology decrees that we do.”
Not nice, in other words, to fool with Mother Nature.

Recent review of this book by The New York Times (Joseph Epstein) concludes:

"...is “The Art of Aging” itself an example of what aging can do to make a once unsparingly unsentimental writer so intellectually squishy?"

You can see the video of the Charlie Rose Interview with the author of this book, Sherwin B. Nuland, here
