  • How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter

    Story

    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.

    Ruth says: "Required reading for those still breathing"
    "Caution- very upsetting!"

    Story
    What disappointed you about How We Die?

    I was enjoying the book and its insight when- boom, he started describing a horrifying murder of a child with no warning what so ever!! I promptly turned it off and tried to erase it from my mind and never revisited since I do not trust the book. I was very disappointed, because I wanted to listen to it but I couldn't without risking serious trauma


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sherwin B. Nuland again?

    No- unless he included an edited version without child murder descriptions


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sherwin B. Nuland?

    Not the problem


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How We Die?

    The child getting hacked in the face


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back- or an extra credit!!!

    Honey, Baby, Sweetums, Pookie... Who knew those sweet, androgynous pet names are the first step toward a nonexistent sex life? And all those 'personal grooming' activities you used to hide... Believe it or not, sharing them with your partner puts you on the fast track toward killing a healthy sexual relationship. Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex is a smart, sassy, and honest guide for women of all ages, and looks at the root causes of sexual boredom in a revolutionary way.

    Matthew says: "This Book could have been a about 20 pages long"
    "Wow, they really meant the title"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Too much of the book was repetitively telling you to stop calling home pet names.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were some pretty good simple suggestions to reconnect with your partner.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ann M. Richardson?

    Anyone. She was way too robotic. It was distracting. She didn't seem real. I wanted someone I could relate to. Or someone inspiring.


    Did Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, it gave some good suggestions for preserving the relationship and not getting too comfortable


    Any additional comments?

    I thought it would talk about about how to actually spark your sex drive to want to have sex, instead of trying to get your partner to want to.
