The small booklet offers readers a glimpse into the extraordinary deaths of thinkers, monarchs, writers, artists, and "regular" people. The book injects a bit of dark humor into readers lives as they travel from the fifth century to present day deaths. I found the descriptions and drawings to be fun and interesting. My favorite facts were about the identical twins who died on the same day and learning how composers used to command their orchestra back in 1687. Overall, a brilliant book and a perfect coffee table book.
