What happens when we die? One day we'll find out, but until then, Mary Roach can fill you in on the various and wildly entertaining scientific endeavors that attempted to answer the question. From ectoplasm weilding mediums, to weighing the soul, to the man so curious he killed himself in order to find out, this book is guaranteed to entertain.

— Beckett


"What happens when we die? Does the light just go out and that's that the million-year nap? Or will some part of my personality, my me-ness persist? What will that feel like? What will I do all day? Is there a place to plug in my lap-top?" In an attempt to find out, Mary Roach brings her tireless curiosity to bear on an array of contemporary and historical soul-searchers: scientists, schemers, engineers, mediums, all trying to prove (or disprove) that life goes on after we die.
