Lucid and lyric, informational and inspirational—a lasting testament to the human spirit and its indefatigable instinct for lasting meaning in a temporal world
In his classic bestseller Anatomy of an Illness, the late Norman Cousins showed us how to use our minds to heal our bodies. In The Celebration of Life, he offers healing balm for the modern soul. In this thought-provoking and unusual book, Cousins takes on a subject no less than immortality itself and shows how we can realize it here and now, every moment of our daily lives.
Written in a unique dialogue form, The Celebration of Life is a compelling conversational survey of modern science, philosophy, religion, physics, politics, ecology, and the biology of the human spirit that supports his view that our one hope for the future—and our own immortality—rests in the recognition of our common humanity.
