'This is not your typical zombie book', wrote the author in the Preface. So I'm probably on the wrong book. It talked about soul, from philosopher's perspective, with a bit of a science. Oh, and Star Trek and The Matrix. I'm not an expert in any of those fields, philosophy, science, or movies, just a regular Joe on the wrong book.
However, I like it! It seriously confusing at times, what with the science and philosophy things, oh... and movies, but it was written with humour. Again, being not an Expert, I might be laughing at the wrong time. Probably won't be changing anyone side's anytime soon, but it's definitely much more interesting to read, compared to the emotionless scientific journal (ha! like I would ever read one), or the offensive, war-like essays. And don't let its pathetic cover discourage you!
