Description

ABOUT THE BOOK This book introduces serious ideas on serious topics such as science, mathematics, logic, economics, religion, politics and war, etc., in a light-hearted, humorous style. Life today is complex and full of tension, anxiety and worry. There should be an outlet to relieve us of all this undesirable nerve-racking emotional turmoil. This book may act as such an outlet. Though the book is aimed at entertaining through wit and even ridicule, it also has the important task of enlightening. In its own jocular way, it may force the reader to view the various aspects of life in a more subtle light. Importantly, it also aims at making the reader a more thoughtful and moral person for whom the final chapter on the selected sayings of the great philosopher Confucius will serve an important purpose. To render the book more readable and entertaining, caricatures prepared by the author are incorporated. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Confuseus (pronounced "confuse us") has published many philosophical and professional books, with a number of them having been adopted as reference texts. He has been a professor and has lectured on academic and professional subjects. He has published a number of important research articles in journals.show more
