Really, Really Big Questions: About Life, the Universe, and Everything

by

Really, Really Big Questions: About Life, the Universe, and Everything Cover

 

Staff Pick

These aren't just questions that philosophy majors in college sit around asking. You ask them, too. And since there are no "right" answers, anyone can think about them and formulate their own opinions. Some of these questions might be important to you; some of them might just be fun to think about, like: What is it like to be a bat?

Engaging, not condescending, this book will help you think about questions and answers in a new way.
