After writing the best-selling Clutter Busting, Brooks realized that he needed to delve deeper into how clutter affects all of our relationships, and how our relationships affect our tendency to hold onto things we no longer want or need. He addresses the stuff that keeps us from experiencing “the joy of connection,” the stuff we use to protect ourselves, control others, and hold onto the past.
Most of our physical and emotional clutter served a purpose at one time, so Palmer gently guides readers to start small. Insight-prompting questions, exercises, client examples, and even whimsical line drawings by the author take readers from overwhelmed and vulnerable to liberated and empowered so that they enjoy deeper, more authentic, and clutter-free relationships of all kinds.
Are you looking to laugh? This book just might be of assistance in that area. Humorist Brooks Palmer helps pull the rug out from under the seriousness of life. With his words of wisdom, short stories, and cartoons, he pokes fun at the human condition in a way that is inclusive and hilarious. Better Late Than Dead! is available at Amazon.

The defenses, anger, and general dopiness we use to protect our tender selves are no match for his gentleness, humor, and insight….I’m beginning to think that Brooks might be able to clutter bust us all the way to world peace.”

“Brooks Palmer is the Philosopher King of Comedy. He is a time traveling yogi who speaks with God and listens in on the Sun and the Moon as they quarrel. He is the master of the anti-punchline. His comedy is a Möbius strip of depth and simplicity forming one continuous side of thought-provoking, philosophical humor, always with a unique point of view. This book is his invitation to go on a journey with him and seethe universe in a different way. Trust me, you will feel special having made the trip.”

— Marc Hartzman , author of American Sideshow and The Embalmed Head of Oliver Cromwell: A Memoir
“Sly, witty, wise and humorous in a satisfyingly subtle way that no mere comedian or comic writer could possibly match, this is a book that you will ponder over, read out loud to friends, and read to yourself again and again — the first time with delight, and after that with an appreciation for just how original a work it really is.”
— Michael Antman, author of Cherry Whip (ENC Press)
“Better Late than Dead is either a stand-up comedy routine or a book of Zen koans or a series of fortune cookies written by a hipster; either way it’s funny and delightful. Mr. Palmer’s books have been translated into 13 languages, but this one won’t make a lick of sense in Swahili. It’s the perfect book to give as a gift, especially for humans, and is conveniently lunch-box portable (unlike say, a surfboard).”
—David Walbridge, President, Pro Comedy Writing
“With his inimitable surreal and absurdist style, Palmer reveals fundamental truths that underlie our everyday experiences. His stories and cartoons are funny, yes, but also life-changing. I sold my home and moved into a condo with my pet ostrich by the time I finished his book.”
—Julia Mossbridge, author of The Garden: An Inside Experiment
