Description
Information
There's just something about the end that makes us want to run screaming back to the beginning...

Did you know that three American states still use the firing squad as a means of execution? Or that you can see Galileo's preserved middle finger in Florence? How about the new trend of having your loved one's ashes turned into a diamond? Loaded with funny and fascinating facts, The Pocket Book of Death is a jaw-dropping miscellany of macabre word origins, hysterical famous last words, bizarre death rituals, the last meals of death row inmates and more. This is a side of death you've never seen before.

Is your job killing you? Maybe it's time to find the perfect career in the death business. Browse through the list to find the most lucrative jobs in the industry. A little paranoid perhaps? Then discover some of the deadliest jobs in the world or the tiniest animals that can kill you.

Accompanied by side-splitting cartoons from the creators of the hugely popular webcomic, 'Cyanide & Happiness', The Pocket Book of Death is so packed with info that it leaves no stone unturned...er, tombstone that is.
