THE MEANING OF LIFE: Each lesson approaches this fascinating but slippery subject from different perspectives: religious, scientific, philosophical, medical, artistic. The result is a summary of mankind’s reflections on the ultimate question. Covering Biology to Buddhism, Cynicism to Existentialism, the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and even HRH Prince Philip! It doesn’t offer any answers (how could it? The whole point is no one knows); instead readers are invited to draw their own conclusions based on the work of history’s finest minds. The result will appeal to anyone with even a hint of curiosity about why we’re here and what it’s all about, even you?
We all know that we don't read enough—but don't beat yourself up—read a little, you can still learn a lot. Read between sets at the gym, on your way to work, while queuing at the bank, or even wind down with a few lessons at bedtime. Dip in, dip out, learn something new along the way. Try it–you might just like it.
