This review is from: Death from the Skies!: These Are the Ways the World Will End . . . (Hardcover)
Phil Plait has written one hell of a gem.
This book is a fun romp through all of the cosmic disasters that could bring about doomsday. Some of these topics are gamma ray bursts and solar storms. As someone who visits nutty websites all of the time, I find the author's writing to be pertinent to the concerns of many people. This book also teaches critical thinking and a good deal of general material in astronomy. This book is humorous and it is fascinating. I highly recommend it.
