9780062005939: A Is for Armageddon: A Catalogue of Disasters That May Culminate in the End of the World as We Know It

A Is for Armageddon is a stunningly illustrated, eye-openingly informative, and wickedly entertaining catalog of disasters that may possibly culminate in the end of the world as we know it. Richard Horne—author of 101 Things to Do Before You Die and illustrator of the blockbuster New York Times bestseller The Dangerous Book for Boys, as well as the covers for J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter School Books for Comic Relief, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Quidditch Through the Ages—combines science, religion, and sociology with good old fashioned paranoia to explore humankind’s dire future. From the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to super volcanoes, A Is for Armageddon is a delectable compendium of doom—and in plenty of time for 2012!

From the Back Cover:

Doomsday . . . Judgment Day . . .

Day of Reckoning . . . The Apocalypse . . .

As the man with the sandwich board might say, "The end of the world is nigh." Nobody knows for sure whether it will be an act of God, a natural event, or a man-made disaster that causes the final bell to toll for humankind, but it is surely primed and ready to clang.

A Is for Armageddon is your ruthlessly clever and gorgeously hopeless guide to the possible—if not imminent—ultimate destruction of our civilization and planet. From animal flatulence to economic collapse to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—from lethal genetic modification to runaway obesity, super volcanoes, and World War III—the seeds of our doom have been sown . . . and our most dire possible fates have been stunningly illustrated in this edifying and uniquely entertaining volume of inescapable horrors, fatal missteps, and the end of everything.

About the Author:
