The foot notes cannot come fast enough,
This review is from: Immortality: The Quest to Live Forever and How It Drives Civilization (Hardcover)
Stephen Cave does not take enough time to build up the background to make the sweeping assumptions that he does. This may have been helped if there is been Footnotes all along saying here somebody else to says this or some other thing that shows this.
He flippantly assumes that all societies, people are built on the thought of four types of immortality. That would be okay in itself except very seems to be a snot when it comes to who is immortality can trump whose immortality as if it was all a game.
