If you've been dying for a great read on a tantalizingly terminal topic, The Pocket Book of Death has your number. In this deliciously dark volume-oh-so-appropriately shaped like a tombstone-you'll find hundreds of fatal factoids about death and dying, on everything from bizarre funeral rites and rituals from cultures across the world to how many American presidents have died on the Fourth of July to the cold-hard stats on the way you're most likely to meet your maker. (You might wanna earmark that page.) Stuffed with entertaining trivia about the one thing you can be sure of in life and hilariously, horrifyingly illustrated throughout, The Pocket Book of Death is a marvelously morbid guide to kicking the bucket.
