Self-indulgent, idiosyncratic, religion-riddled smorgasbord that would not have been published if the author were not prolific and well known. Some interesting topics, such as mind uploading, the stupidity of drug-prohibition laws, and the Carter/Leslie Doomsday Argument.

"Science writer Cliff Pickover explores the borderlands of science and art in his latest and greatest work. Part memoir and part surrealistic perspective on culture, Pickover gives readers a glimpse of new ways of thinking and of other worlds as he reaches across cultures and peers beyond our ordinary reality. Unlock the doors of your imagination with topics that range from the creative genius of author Truman Capote, musician John Cage, and occult rocket-scientist Jack Parsons, to cutting-edge scientific speculation on immortality, mythology, near-death experiences, evolution and intelligent design, and quantum resurrection. A Beginner's Guide to Immortality is the hammer that shatters the ice of our unconscious" -- www.sprott.physics.wisc.edu… (more)
