This is a little handbook about life which isn’t packed with mumbo jumbo stuff. It won’t make you thin or rich or stop you from smoking, which is good because hospitals need patients, they’re their life’s blood (especially in haematology). The little widgy book logically supposes a few weirdo things and contains some hyperbolic humour. The main logical question isn’t one that is usually asked in pubs ... never mind answered. The answer, which is obviously will make other questions pop into your mind. If you have even the slightest interest in what life is. We’re told that we don’t know what life is, but, we have things called beliefs. So ... do you believe that?
