The subtitle is Forty Tales From the Afterlives.  This bestseller looks thin and unsubstantial but I would recommend it to some of you.

Take a Baylor neuroscientist, feed him a steady dose of Robin Hanson, and then let him write down forty short, conceptual scenarios for what life after death might be like.  Not for everyone, but I found the "pleasure per minute" ratio to be worthwhile.


I like Terry Pratchett's view in the Discworld series: you get whatever afterlife you believe in.

Just a clarification... he's a Baylor College of Medicine neuroscientist, no affiliation with Baylor University. Sorry, I've got to give props to the hometown med school.

I gree with it!
