Stand the world on its head and shake out its pockets. What you’ll get is this book of sometimes-quirky commentary that masks earnest attempts to say it like it is. Why sleeping in a bed can be dangerous; how to tell you are not dead; why rain may not exist… The goal is to get to the heart of things, even if that means stripping down to the naked truth. Insights abound: suspicions the author may be sleepwalking; why his dog needs to see a counselor; his new theory of everything—that’s a small sample. The rest may surprise you.
