9780143118251: Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates: Using Philosophy (and Jokes!) to Explore Life, Death, the Afterlife, and Everything in Between

Q. Why are there almost as many jokes about death as there are about sex? 

A. Because they both scare the pants off us.

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.

And now, you can read Daniel Klein's further musings on life and philosophy in Travels with Epicurus and Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change it.

About the Author:

Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein pursued the usual careers after majoring in philosophy at Harvard. Tom has worked with street gangs in Chicago, doctors at Blue Cross Blue Shield, and has dropped out of various divinity schools. Daniel has written several novels and nonfiction books as well as jokes for comedians like Flip Wilson and Lily Tomlin. Daniel Klein lives in Massachusetts, and Thomas Cathcart lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

Who says philosophy can't be funny? Pretty much everyone. But don't tell Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein because they've made amusing, informative audiobooks that examine the big questions in life their little specialty. HEIDEGGER is a clever work dealing with those age-old mysteries: death and the afterlife. The guys perform the book themselves, and author narrations are always chancy. In this case, it's a sure bet. The authors have a rapport that endears them to the listener. They often sound like a couple of Dutch uncles recounting old jokes and stories. But there's a point to their stories, advice among the gags and examples that we can live by. This is also a book that works as a series of separate stories you'll enjoy telling around the water cooler. M.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
