This book begins by talking about how you can find the ultimate truth through a very special 'scientific' method: You have someone hold his arms up and try to push down on his arm. If you say something positive to him while you do this, he is stronger. If you say something negative, he is weaker. Now you can test out other things in the same way. From this the author extrapolates that the secrets of the universe are unfolded, all of us connected by a hidden consciousness, mystics, gurus, blah blah blah. Of course, all the scientific 'studies' he provides are vague and non-descript.

This pseudoscience is reminiscent of the Scientologists who give an electromagnetic stress test and tell you all kinds of deep truths about your psyche. When someone tries to bring such deep and all-encompassing 'truths' through unverified simple biological tests, you know you should be skeptical.

A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

The narration of this book is terrible and distracting. Instead of just reading, the narrator over-acts each sentence like a little kid telling a ghost story with flashlight under his face, doing his best imitation of Vincent Price. It was tiresome. The content of the book seems like it has potential, but I couldn't get past the narration.
