review 1: (WARNING: Corny jokes ahead) That should be the warning on the front of this book. As the subtitle states and many reviewers have noted, this book contains jokes that are pretty corny. I found it not too bad, but you have to be in the mood for that kind of humour.This book is about one of the biggest topics in our lives. What happens after this? Adding humour to the book is a pretty good idea to break up the "death anxiety" as they put it. Through the book, a number of philosophical and religious ideas about the afterlife are presented. Nothing is gone into with a serious amount of detail, it is basic fundamentals. However, it is interesting for someone approaching the concept and trying to figure out their own personal philosophy to get a broad base of ideas which this bo... moreok provides. I enjoyed this book and how it present the content. It gave me new ideas to think about and allowed to reexamine things I already knew.
review 2: By far not as funny as their previous book "Plato and a platypus walk into a bar", but they still touch some interesting topics in philosophy that most of us don't think about that often. I do believe that pondering about your own mortality can make you live your life more fully, and this book sure takes you through some interesting perspectives. Memento mori!

Another book with witty humor explaining several sides of philosophic views.
Philosophy of death told through jokes. Pretty good, if not all that clear.
Couple of good jokes, but the flip style gets a little tedious.
Bit of philosophy and a few laughs, great bathroom reading.
