Featuring Freud! Groucho Marx! Socrates! Lily Tomlin! Kierkegaard! Buddha! New Yorker cartoonists! Zombies! And of course, Heidegger!
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein first made a name for themselves with the outrageously funny New York Times bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar. Now they turn their attention to the Big D and share the timeless wisdom of the great philosophers, theologians, psychotherapists and wiseguys.
From angels to zombies and everything in between, Cathcart and Klein offer a fearless and irreverent history of how we approach death, why we embrace life, and whether there really is a hereafter.
As hilarious as it is enlightening, Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates is a must-read for anyone and everyone who ever expects to die.
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein have known each other since they were philosophy students at Harvard. They have written several bestsellers together, including Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar and Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington. Tom is the author of The Trolley Problem, or Would You Throw the Fat Guy Off the Bridge? Danny’s other books include Travels with Epicurus and Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life They Change It.

Douglas Coop, “The Art of Influencing Crowds: People Power”

ISBN: 1785385747 | 2016 | EPUB | 222 pages | 1 MB

The main theme of this book is a sociological and psychological examination of crowd behaviour and people power. Written for the general public, it draws on a century of fieldwork, and brings together the opinions and guidance of many scientists eminent in their field to give modern-day insights to this traditional area of interest. Nowadays, crowds respond in different ways to the many types of leaders: politicians, teachers, preachers, and the stirrers of public conscience, as well as anybody in the position to influence crowds in times of social strife. The social media now give great power to individuals, enabling a single person to influence people worldwide.

Aspiring model Sandee Rozzo’s big mistake was being kind to Timothy “Tracey” Humphrey. After Rozzo refused the ‘roided-up ex-con’s advances, she described how he imprisoned, raped, and brutalized her for two days. When the courageous woman pledged to testify against him, Humphrey knew he had to silence her. . .
That’s when he turned to 19-year-old Ashley Laney. She had fallen in love with Humphrey, her personal trainer, and would do anything for him. On their wedding night, he made a strange request–one that would end with eight gunshot wounds and a dead body.
The police knew Humphrey was the likely suspect, but he had an alibi for the time of the shooting. How could they prove that, even if he didn’t pull the trigger, he was the manipulative psychopath behind Sandee’s murder? It would all come down to a prison escape, a manhunt for a killer, and an explosive trial. . .
