More About the Author

Charles Panati is a physicist, and for many years was the science editor of Newsweek. He's published 13 non-fiction books, and two novels. Most of his books are now available as ebooks in the Kindle Store. His 'Browser's Book of Beginnings' was the basis for the TV show THE START OF SOMETHING BIG, hosted by comedian Steve Allen, and written by Panati. In his early twenties, Panati was an escort for several Miss America contestants, and in September of 1965 the girl he escorted, Debbie Irene Bryant, became Miss America of 1966. Panati's most recent non-fiction is a Kindle book: ANIMALS PRAY - In Their Own Way. As a passionate animal lover, Panati has imagined what prayers animals would say to a Heavenly Being, their joys and laments. As well as what kind of Bill of Rights they'd have drawn up, and Declaration of Independence, their Golden Rule, Ten Commandments, Eight Beatitudes, and the like. He calls himself an 'editor' of the book, a confidant and complier, lending his ear as the animals themselves speak their minds.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most amazing books in my library. It's a little macabre -- part one, "Last Things First", starts with the chapter on Death. But the descriptions of the last hours of many noteworthy people are worth the price of the book alone, and that's only a small part of the book.
My only complaint is that it's a little too thorough where American presidents are concerned -- this bit drags, in stark contrast to everything else in the book.
I am disappointed to see that it's out of print.

I am amazed at how often I have to return to this book for information. It's unbelievable how often you'll need to look up information about plagues, wills, cemetaries, etc. Contains info about death, sex practices, extinctions, capital punishment, etc. Everything you ever wanted to know about death and dying!

You want death,doom and massive body counts? Then this book is for you. Where else can you learn about how many people died of the black plauge, thyphoid Mary and all the glorious comunnicable contagens? It's all here. Too bad it's out of print.
