Birth, Death and other Trivialities, which is a humourous philosophical look at the human condition and his most recent opus, Poutine on the Orient Express: An Irreverent Look at Travel.
Marcel Strigberger is uniquely qualified to deal with life’s so called serious issues in a whimsical and entertaining manner. And he’s a lot more fun to read and to listen to than Rene Descartes, Jean Paul Sartre and Sir Isaac Newton. Maybe not Sir Isaac Newton.
