Modern Death: How Medicine Changed the End of Life

We rated this book:


Among all the books on science I have read in decades past, none generates more reflection than the present one. In it, author Haider Warraich, M.D., stimulates our minds to reflect on life and death in ways that are both surprising and inspiring. In his new book, Modern Death, Dr. Warraich subscribes to a new way that we can think about the deeper meaning of life and death.

At last we get a glimpse of what it really means to see how some people, including some physicians, like to play God or dismiss those who would like to play God. We also get to see the various phases of the meaning of death as put foreword by those in the medical profession.

The book is a neatly compiled and detailed examination of life and death from a changing medical point of view. It seems that medicine indeed has changed the way we understand the nature of the end of life, as the book’s subtitle suggests. The author’s rich background from Harvard and Duke universities supports his ongoing contributions to several major and important publications.
