David Eagleman, a scientist at the Baylor College of Medicine, offers an interesting look at death and beyond in “Sum.” (By the way, he used this old Latin phrase as the title - of course meaning “I am.”) He presents 40 different short stories of varying gods and the afterlives they create, all of which are mutually exclusive - one cannot believe in more than one without contradicting oneself. In this way, he causes readers to think about beliefs and why they believe them. Atheists will love this book, and love giving it to Fundie friends. It also contains kernels of wisdom that people can apply to their own lives; for example, one story he “calculates” the time someone can spend in a lifetime brushing teeth, eating, watching tv, etc. (One of our staff owns this book and just adores it; she said it is “a book on living rather than a book on dying.”) Excellent reading!
Hardback - 107 pages.
