You Will Die

by Robert Arthur

A book that vigorously defends heroin users and sex workers? In You Will Die: The Burden of Modern Taboos Robert Arthur does that and more to demonstrate that taboos are not relics of primitive societies. America has its own ridiculous phobias and beliefs that cause tedium, suffering, and death. The government and the media use these taboos to lie and mislead. It is not a conspiracy, but by pushing panic for votes and viewers they thwart our pursuit of happiness.You Will Die exposes the fallacies and the history behind our taboos on excrement, sex, drugs, and death. Arthur uses racy readability and rigorous documentation to raze sacred shrines of political correctness on the left and of conventional wisdom on the right. From the proper way to defecate to how to reach nirvana, anticipate the unexpected. It is not simply a novel exploration of sex and drugs, but also of individuality, liberty, and the meaning of life. You Will Die gives readers a new way of seeing their world and allows them to make a more informed choice about living an authentic life.Winner of the 2008 Montaigne Medal awarded for most thought-provoking independent book."... ya gotta fight back against the Sarah Palin 'idiot herd' with something."Wayne Coyne, Lead Singer, The Flaming Lips"... one of my favorite books ..."Mark Frauenfelder, Editor, Boing Boing"This book is a MUST READ! I loved it."Dr. Mark Benn, Psychologist, Colorado State University
