“A sly and madcap romp through the underworld that we ourselves have created for punishing our enemies – an underworld that only half of us believe in, just some of the time.” – Eilleen Gardiner, author of Visions of Heaven and Hell Before Dante
“What in the world were human beings thinking when we invented hell? In this delightful book, Marq de Villiers shows us that our conception of The Bad Place might not teach us much about the universe, but it illuminates a great deal about ourselves.” – Sean Carroll, author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning , and the Universe Itself
