“Live more lives than one”, a free book by Philosophy Bear, is out now.
If you enjoy the book and decide you want to help me cover the cost of advertising, you can chuck in here: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/Livemorelivesthanone 100% of donations will go to cover the costs of advertisements, for each $5 donated the book is downloaded by approximately 20 more people- even if we only consider the benefit of entertaining people that seems like pretty good value for money. You could also help out by sharing it somewhere like Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, a forum, etc. etc.
What’ s it about? The easiest introduction is just to jump in and pick an essay that sounds interesting, but if you’re still not sure, topics covered in the book include the novels of Iain Banks, questions that keep me up at night, Russian Cosmism, the poetry of Oscar Wilde, OCD, philosophy of language, the nature of belief, and the failures of meritocracy. It’s an eclectic collection of what I think are my best essays, and I’d be surprised if there’s not something in there which is relevant to you.
You might be wondering why I made it free? I figure that if people want to pay for it, they can so choose. If you did want to chuck me a few bucks to cover the cost of advertising it, it would mean a lot, not just financially but personally.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to check it out, just remember:
A) It’s free.
B) It’s by an eccentric dude on the internet, so even if it turns out to be bad, it will probably at least be interesting.
The only rule is that if you enjoy it, you have to share it. This is on an honor system- please don’t cheat.
