The Compleat Thunks Book

Description

We are living in an age in which facts don't count, certainty no longer exists and complexity means we never quite know what just happened, let alone what will happen next. To better prepare ourselves for such a world, we need a brain workout that isn't so much about finding answers as getting our heads around questions.

We need The Compleat Thunks Book: a collection of beguiling questions about everyday things that stop you in your tracks and help you start to look at the world in a whole new light. At times controversial and often provocative, Ian Gilbert's brainteasers are sure to stimulate philosophical enquiry and debate during the thinking, reasoning, logic or panic employed in arriving at (or deviating from) the answers and conversations that ensue. In other words, it's not about the answers at all and, as in life, there are none at the back of the book.

Covering as wide a variation of topics as possible - from love and lies to parking a car and molesting robots - The Compleat Thunks Book will appeal to people of all ages, tastes and prejudices, and can be used to steer pub, dinner party or family discussions away from the same old topics.

Some of these Thunks were previously published in The Book of Thunks, ISBN 978-184590092-2, The Little Book of Thunks, ISBN 978-184590062-5, and Independent Thinking, ISBN 978-178135055-3. Thunks is a registered trademark of Independent Thinking Ltd.
