This is the stuff that’s too gross for your history book!
The bloody, messy (and extremely funny) real-life details of exactly how many historical people died. Find out why you should be really, really grateful for the invention of the X-Ray and other medical advances, not to mention who might have exploded in their (not quite sealed) coffin during the funeral. Chapter headings such as: Christopher Columbus: Death by Dirt and Marie Curie: You Glow Girl, along with funny cartoon pictures, add to the fun. But as the introduction warns: If you don’t have the guts for gore, do not read this book.
