Editorial Reviews

Review

“A bold, terrifying read that goes down smooth thanks to a crisp infusion of humor. Thanks to this book, I can now aspire to dying in cooler ways than I ever thought possible. F**k you, old age. I’m holding out for a megatsunami.”
—Daniel H. Wilson, author of How To Survive a Robot Uprising
 
“The book is proof that the ridiculous and the horrible are joined at the hip and will never be separated; in a universe that seems to continually be thinking up new ways to kill us, Brockway knows there is but one rational response: to point at it and laugh.”
—David Wong, author of John Dies at the End

“There has never been a hipper Prophet of Doom. Irreverently entertaining and terrifyingly accurate, the probability of our future death has never been more fun.”
—Michael Largo, author of Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die

“This book is hilarious. As if I wasn't already afraid the leave the house. What's that? Brockway suggests the apocalypse doesn't knock? What if I cower under a desk? Well, damn. I might as well have another nacho.”
—Garth Sundem, author of The Geeks’ Guide to World Domination

I recieved this book 5 days ago, and finished it 2 days ago.
Jens Osaer
The chapters are fairly short and quick to read which made me fly through this book.
Jeff Kimble
This is a great writer with a wonderfully sarcastic sense of humor.

Name 5 ways we're all going to die. Do it! Right now! Before reading this book I knew of maybe three ways: asteroid, war, or plague. Wait, four--global warming. Robert Brockway details, like, 20, and each one scares you more than the last. I've learned way more about killer volcanos, super hurricanes, and killer robots than I ever actually wanted to know, but at least all this fear-mongering put a smile on my face. So buy the book, get informed of all ways everything and everybody wants you dead, and come join me in my bunker. I have nachos!

This book is amazingly crammed full of information. My favorite part is the Verneshot. Read this, and you will learn a lot more about the world than by reading the newspaper or watching tv. Some parts are genuinely scary. I feel like there's a 50% chance we will unleash a terrifying virus or disease on mankind based on the ridiculous science experiments Brockway describes. It's fine abstractly, but think about what that will actually be like. How do you cope when you're reading this before sleeping? Luckily, you laugh. Buy this book!

Fans of Cracked.com (undoubtedly, a large percentage of you) will enjoy this book. The format is similar to many of the articles on the site, but more in-depth. It doesn't come off as expanded just to fill pages, however. The information is presented as concisely as possible, while still retaining all of its humor and sarcasm. The selected bibliography provides a starting point for further research into any of the topics that catch your interest, instead of just typing "robots are going to kill me" into Google.

What an utterly entertaining book! Now, it does have a lot of curse words in it, so if you don't enjoy sarcasm and a generous sprinkling of swearing, you might want to pass on this book. However, if you're like me and sarcasm is your first language, followed by cursing, followed by English, it's a wholly entertaining look at the worst case possible scenarios of how space, people, robots and chicken potatoes are out to kill you.

This is hands down the funniest book I've read in a long time. The only things that kept me from running out and buying a tin foil helmet were the well timed swear words and humorous anecdotes that made the end of the world seem awesome.

If you like Cracked.com's articles (or even if you don't), you are going to love this book. It's like getting a book-lengthed pie of that flavor of hilarity! Plus, you learn crap that you can impress your friends/co-workers/in-laws with!

Format: Paperback
The very funny sarcastic book... is not only very well written but drop dead hillarous - The first chapter pretty much says it all: a true story about a man who saved the world and got FIRED for it. It writes itself is the best way to put it. The writer has done this sort of thing before and shows it by being... hilourous, the best thing I've ever read and perfect spot on perfect. I will say that just to make sure that you understand those reviews were all from real people!

I'll admit it - one of my guiltiest pleasures is learning about the potential apocalypse. Any end-of-humanity-as-we-know-it stories I can find, I totally devour. Immediately upon hearing about Everything is Going to Kill Everybody, I preordered this book and Amazon, in its kindest of hearts, had it on my doorstep a day sooner than anticipated. Today was like Christmas morning, if Christmas presents were brightly-wrapped horror. Being familiar with Brockway's writing and having read a sneak peek on Cracked, I felt I knew what to expect. It has blown my expectations out of the water. Everything is Going to Kill Everybody is equal parts hilarious and terrifying, packed with oh-so-quotable facts accented with amusing illustrations.

I probably should not have read this so near bedtime (that is, any time while awake). I am not entirely sure if I will be able to sleep tonight. Or ever again. Oh well, I'll just sleep when I'm dead...
