Marc Maron has mentioned this several times, and it's an amazing, mind-blowing read. A post-freudian look at our daily struggles with life, death, and our own "hero" myths. Consulter l'avis complet

Review: The Denial of Death

Avis d'utilisateur  - Bill - Goodreads

This book is not 4 stars. It is either 3 or 5, I'm just not sure which. On one hand, the book has changed my outlook on life - 5 stars.

Avis d'utilisateur  - Sarah Gerard - Goodreads

Four stars instead of five because Becker has some strange ideas about homosexuality. Otherwise, this was brain-meltingly good. Consulter l'avis complet
