The fundamentals of a human's life on this planet have not changed very much over the millennia. The world is large and indifferent to the suffering of its denizens, its inhabitants. Perhaps there is a God who is not indifferent. Perhaps there is no such God. There are, however, people who suffer. Those people sometimes wonder about their suffering, their place in this world, and, forgive the expression, God knows what else. You Die at the End: Meditations on Mortality and the Human Condition is William Ferraiolo's attempt to contemplate a few elements of the human condition from the perspective of an individual, middling effort to manage a human life. Perhaps this will prove worthy of the reader's time and effort. The author hopes to be of service. The author frequently fails. Sometimes, the author blunders into a brief, useful moment of clarity. Read on to find out if this book serves as a useful blunder.
