Book Description

This is a book of questions, some of which are funny whereas many others are more serious, puzzling and disturbing. A book in which biology is used as a foundation to build a down-to-earth narrative, in the hope of addressing all basic human concerns from a modern, casual and holistic perspective. Thus, an excellent book to question life and death, religions and philosophies, the self and the universe, technology and knowledge, love and sorrow, and so on; in short, questioning what surely needs to be questioned, in different ways and with enough substance for dreams and reflections of both a scientific and humanistic nature. Above all, with enough substance so that the reader may question the music or the noise of the world that can be heard everywhere on a daily basis, full of selfish and extraneous interests.

1.0 out of 5 stars At best this is bad alchemy 2 April 2015
By Andreas
Format:Kindle Edition
Absolute drivel, without any scientific, philosophical or metaphysical basis. The author has simply put together a series of inconsequential questions, without providing any sort of scientific basis. At best this is bad alchemy, that at least will push a logical person to look for the right answers in science. At worst, this might fool an idiot into thinking that one can put together random scientific words and write a book. Read the sample and laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awe-inspiring book 4 July 2015
By C Bee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awe-inspiring book; so deep, interesting and full of irreverence and intelligence. But, first of all, in order to not to be misled or deceived by the title, perhaps it is adequate to mention that is not strictly scientific or philosophic stuff; so, despite it uses a traditional and huge cultural framework the author reveals itself without any serious pretensions to demonstrate anything at all, any believe system or biological or physical theory. On the contrary, that seems to be up to the reader. Otherwise, by using these scientific, philosophic and even religious concepts, pages are filled with the simpler and more complex breathings of the human heart and mind, with penetrating, acute and sane skeptical thinking; thus, the book style can sometimes overtake the reader if he or she is accustomed to swallow crushed pills alone, easy and “mechanical answers”.

To sum up, go ahead if you have some scientific tendency but you want to really question about the very essence of life and death; in my case, far beyond what I could have expected beforehand.

5.0 out of 5 stars So intriguing 21 May 2015
By Devon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I think this is a lot of fun. Since when do books ask you questions instead of making you ask your own. This is a great book of questions, some of which are funny and some are super confusing. I like to bring it out at parties and see how people answer them! This is a great way to get to know yourself and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars i like it. 24 May 2015
By Jess Bishop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I think this is a different type of book. It was fun and also confusing. It is filled with questions. Its concept is clear and understandable. I think it is a great book of questions. I know if I ask someone a question, I will definitely get answered and it is the right way to gain knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 27 July 2015
By Lexi R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Five stars, extraordinary and really surprising book. Step by step, this extremely original book has been a tremendous surprise for me. First of all, it is not a traditional biology book where one can learn some academic information in order to correctly answer any tests, on the contrary, one discovers zillions of ideas to skeptically discuss, to intelligently debate about so many subjects: biotechnology, the nature of information and the universe, ethics, robots or automatons, religions, love, peace, technological singularities, the limitations of knowledge, etcetera. Certainly, the cultural framework of the book is wide and profound, and the approach to the matter is radically different, quite peculiar. Then, biology is just an excuse to go into the very essence of life and death meanings. By the way, the chapter about death is absolutely severe but immensely brilliant. Read it! Use it! And certainly, the answer is up to the reader!

By ANDREW B GRANT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Non nonsensical advert slipped into an AOL 'low level' article renders the likely hood of this being of sufficient value to warrant wasting time on reading poor, & even less so on paying for the privilege of it!
