5.0 out of 5 stars A Mind-expanding read, 31 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Beginner's Guide to Immortality: Extraordinary People, Alien Brains, and Quantum Resurrection (Paperback)
A very easy book to read and I polished this one off in just 3 sittings. 3 sittings? You will see from my reviews of several Autobiographies that they were done and dusted in just one sitting. You cannot read this book like that. You need to have a pen and paper to hand, and you need a substantial break after each chapter to write down your thoughts and digest the work. This is great stuff. To be fair although Immortality is a theme that runs through the book, I do not believe it is the main theme - my feeling is this is rather a book of the Mind, its wonders and peculiarities, and as such it includes what must be some of history's most extraordinary people.
I will not spoil the read for you by giving a synopsis, but this book contains many gems. You will come across "The Epic of Gilgamesh" quite a lot - if you haven't read this, you should anyway. Also, there are sections on Quantum Immortality, some effects of (illegal) drugs, and a nice long discussion of "The Matrix" and its creators. Pen and paper at the ready - get reading!!!!
