The new book by the best-selling authors of Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar is a hilarious take on the philosophy, theology, and psychology of mortality and immortality. That is, Death. The authors pry open the coffin lid on this one, looking at the Big D and also its prequel, Life, and its sequel, the Hereafter.Philosophers such as Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Camus, and Sartre have been wrestling with the meaning of death for as long as they have been wrestling with the meaning of life. Fortunately, humorists have been keeping pace with the major thinkers by creating gags about dying. Death's funny that way - it gets everybody's attention. Death has gotten a bad rap. It's time to take a closer look at what the Deep Thinkers have to say on the subject, and there are no better guides than Cathcart and Klein.More
"This little book is an entertaining and surprisingly informative survey of the Big D and its centrality in human life." (Publishers Weekly)

Straining too much; not funny.
Great humor for a hard topic
Love the way these guys take a potentially difficult topic and bring humor to it in a way that's very informative. Good discussion and information from a variety of different perspectives. Would definitely recommend.
