Sherwin Nuland (1930-2014) was a renowned surgeon and Yale professor whose 1994 masterpiece, How We Die: Reflections on Life’s Final Chapter, won the National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize nomination. His follow-up four years later, How We Live, is an equally powerful work. Before his passing in 2014, Nuland sat down for an extraordinary conversation with Krista Tippett, host of the astonishing radio show, On Being. Maria Popova of Brain Pickings was particularly captivated by one portion of the interview in which Nuland discusses the one most important thing that everybody needs. Popova edited the 3:50 segment into a Soundcloud which you can listen to above, and you can also hear the entire one-hour interview in full in the second Soundcloud player just below.
