How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg

Funny, informative, and gross, the author takes readers on a chronological graveyard tour of famous people starting with King Tut and ending with Albert Einstein.   Readers will feel relieved to live in the world of good hygiene and modern medicine.  The brief biographies are as enlightening as they are entertaining though many of the people are well known, such as Pocahontas, Mozart, and Columbus.  “Further reading and surfing” at the back of the book are there for those who want more.
