The book lays down a really good understanding of the author’s framework of Nonsense and a better understanding of how can research in the future can use this framework to understand and analyse science and experiences of people in the future.
BUT, I was left disappointed. Although there is a discussion of physics and life after death experiences, there was no real information on how the new framework can help to gather new insights from existing science or spirituality. If the concept of nonsense is supposed to help to gap science and spirituality, i was left wanting. After finishing to listen to the audiobook I was left wondering, how is the book useful for the reader in gaining any insight into the known contradictions between science and logic and near death experiences or life after death reports. Are people just hallucinating or is there another way of looking at their reports? I came with an open mind and was left with what feels like a mostly academic exercise in Nonsense.
I would have loved the author to give some of his insights, ideas and interpretations of the science in general and life after death reports specifically.

A must for everyone!! Listen and share with as many people as you can

We are living in a time where news dominate our lives. They are mostly irrelevant, misleading, superficial and influenced by commercial interests and PR firms.
The constant exposure to the news are not good for our stress, and not good for our minds. This book is simple yet profound.
I have started my road to sobriety on my NA program (News Addicts)!!!

Fascinating and so honest

This book is so wonderful. Elton John wrote a book which is honest, revealing and at times very vulnerable. I could not stop listening. Hearing Taron narrating made the experience of listening to it pure bliss. Dramatic and somber in the right places. Taron was hilarious imitating the accents of all the different characters. The whole thing was just irresistible.

Thank you Elton for your music and this wonderful book. And thank you Taron sharing for all your amazing gifts.

I highly recommend this audiobook.

So simple, so profound.

This book aims at changing habits and addictions but I think that the information within applies to a fuller, richer and more meaningful life. Embracing our HUMANITY fully.

Funny and so inspiring!!

Listening to Trevor Noah tell his story in his voice is so hear warming and inspiring. I recommended this book for everybody I know because I know that listening to it will change you and the way you look at life and people around you.
