In the introduction to this hugely entertaining read, the authors hope that by combining 'science and gruesome detail', they'll bring us a book where 'Stephen King meets Stephen Hawking'. By the end, this mission has been triumphantly accomplished.
Sure to please the macabre-minded.

Entertaining - if harrowing.
New York Times Book Review
Vivid, engaging and utterly fascinating...With bite-size morsels of astonishing science and
the perfect combination of smart-alecky writing and black humour, this page-turner will surely debunk any
misapprehension that science is dull.
Booklist (starred review)
As someone who is averse to flying, elevators, and a catalog of other things I'd rather not admit to, I found this book strangely cathartic. A great read, full of interesting anecdotes and funny commentary.Ali Almossawi
