    DescriptionQ. 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.
