42: Deep Thought on Life, the Universe, and Everything

by Mark Vernon - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851685608 | ISBN 10: 185168560x

In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the supercomputer Deep Thought pronounces 42 as the answer to life, the Universe, and everything. Three decades after the publication of this iconic book, acclaimed philosopher Mark Vernon returns to the truth behind this infamous utterance...
 
Drawing his inspiration from 42 of the funniest, wisest, and quirkiest quotations on the big questions in life, Vernon offers a light-hearted look at what philosophy has to say about life, the Universe, and everything.
 
Deftly interweaving the thoughts of the greatest minds of all time, from Socrates to Monty Python, Vernon provides a platter of witty yet profound discussions on work, love, eternal life, sex, and happiness.
 
From the allure of cats to the nature of wisdom, this rip-roaring read is the perfect companion for the armchair philosopher, and proves that even a little introspection can transform our lives for the better!
