Written with remarkable style and humor, the author has managed to cover a lot of material that will leave you chuckling. There are other books out there that provide similar information, but none do it as well. This book manages to take a lot of the stigma out of death. It is accurate and loaded with tons of interesting information concerning the deaths of well-known dead folks. You can liken this book as a cemetery guide for an armchair cemeterian.
My only criticism is that I wish this book was bigger. Mr. Petrucelli undoubtedly has a lot of unused material out there that I know he didn't even touch on. Seems like he better get started on MORBID CURIOUSITY Vol. 2.
He's not that respectful to the departed, and likes to be cute about it all. I was hoping for something more serious. But for many, they will like this book.
