[Pathways] New book by Geoffrey Klempner

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Kindle version of my new book 'I Might Not Have Existed But Someone Exactly Like Me Might Have Existed In My Place: the idiotic conundrum'. A paperback version will be following soon.

Here is the Amazon.com page for my book:


(The cover design is intentionally provocative.)

From the description:

"This book represents the product of a year's work on a single Question (note the capital letter), which I call the 'idiotic conundrum'. It falls into two Parts, plus an Appendix.

"Part I consists of writing done over July and August 2019. I didn't know then, or hadn't planned that this would turn into a book. I was simply pursuing an investigation, and in each writing session something came to light that I hadn't considered before. I stopped when I ran out of new ideas.

"Part II consists of writing done during May 2020. A new lead had emerged, and I pursued it as far as I could. It ends with a discovery that has forced me to reassess all the work I have done to date.

"In the Appendix, I have placed transcripts of my three recent YouTube videos, which deal with the same Question. These were done in September and December 2019 and February 2020, in between the two pieces of writing."
