Charles Panati, America’s favorite gatherer of origins, now offers the last word on how people, places and things of all sorts have met their ends through the centuries.  From famous presidents to frightening epidemics, from ancient extinctions to vanished vogues, from bizarre last wills to the death styles of the rich and renowned, “The Browser’s Book of Endings” presents the amusing, the surprising, and the generally little-known stories behind the terminations of practically everything and everybody.  Richly illustrated and with extensive references, this is the most readable and complete compendium of deliciously trivial and profound facts about history’s endings.


About the Author:
