Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives


In the afterlife you may find that God is the size of a microbe and unaware of your existence. Or you may find the afterlife contains only those people whom you remember. In some afterlives you are split into all your different ages, in some you are recreated based on your credit card records, and in others you are forced to live with annoying versions of yourself that represent what you could have been. In these wonderfully imagined tales - at once funny, wistful and unsettling - Eagleman kicks over the chessboard of traditional notions and offers us a dazzling lens through which to see ourselves here and now. His stories are rooted in science and romance and awe at our mysterious existence: a mixture of hope, love and death that cuts through human nature at innovative angles. Hide synopsis

Required Reading for A*L*L

by John R on Jan 7, 2011

This book, plus a good appreciation of astronomy, should be compulsory for all 'leaders' (and indeed 'followers') whatever their opinion of their own knowledge and intelligence. Thought provoking, and puts things in their rightful place - a lesson to us all. More
