The new edition of Youniverse is not going to be a big seller nor

accomplish any wonders, but something is better than nothing, and it will surely
help a bit in recruiting new members for the cryonics organizations. Readers
here can assist with very little effort and zero expense, maybe save a life.
 Just disseminate the page below, or/and material of your own  composition.
Adding favorable reviews on Amazon.com and CN.com  (Barnes & Noble) would
also help, if you have read it.

Please take a minute to notice that some respectable  people have been
impressed by Robert Ettinger's latest  book.
Appreciation for the first edition of Youniverse:
Professor Peter Gouras, M.D., Ph.D., Columbia University:
"A classic  for anyone trying to understand what this universe is all
about...and it has  many little things that add to the fun of reading it

Professor Emeritus Henry R. Hirsch, Ph.D., University of Kentucky College
of Medicine:
aC Youniverse is one of the most important  works of philosophy of this and
the last century because it reveals the ideas  and convictions of a visionary
who foresees the possibility of a blindingly  bright future for the human
race. The guidelines which he proposes are notable  for their wisdom and
their good practical common sense. They are accompanied by  many examples of
applications which are useful and sometimes  entertaining. In short, if one
were limited to reading a single book on  philosophy, this would be the bookaC 
Psychiatrist Jerry Lemler, M.D., former President of the  Alcor Life
Extension Foundation: aC Once again it's Bob Ettinger with his latest  work,

Youniverse, who leads us out of  Hamelin yet again. For all vertebrate creatures
this particular planet, the  amygdala, (in the limbic system), the

phylogenetically oldest part of the brain,  is the organism's "smoke detector" 
existential threats. The zebra on the  Serenghetti or a newborn human infant
can merely react with the classic fight or  flight response. As we acquire
language, however, what irony it is that the  added menu item is the freeze
response. Youniverse comes to the rescue of this  apparent paradox, as

Ettinger presents the salient arguments that posit we  deploy our higher 
functions to launch top-down rather than bottom-up  processing like our less
fortunate evolutionary forebearers. "Plop. plop, fizz,  fizz, oh what a
relief it is!"
