Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! This is a must read. Period. You'd think humanity's eventual destruction would be a downer, but this book had me laughing throughout and feeling great by the end. The style is smooth, light, and completely free of jargon. Plus, the author does not bother with well known suspected causes of the end of the world; you will be surprised. Instead, you'll find the stuff movies and sci-fi have proposed as end-world scenarios (only for real). Informative and funny, this book is awesome.

Editorial Reviews

“A bold, terrifying read that goes down smooth thanks to a crisp infusion of humor. Thanks to this book, I can now aspire to dying in cooler ways than I ever thought possible. F**k you, old age. I’m holding out for a megatsunami.” —Daniel H. Wilson, author of How To Survive a Robot Uprising “The book is proof that the ridiculous and the horrible are joined at the hip and will never be separated; in a universe that seems to continually be thinking up new ways to kill us, Brockway knows there is but one rational response: to point at it and laugh.” —David Wong, author of John Dies at the End“There has never been a hipper Prophet of Doom. Irreverently entertaining and terrifyingly accurate, the probability of our future death has never been more fun.” —Michael Largo, author of Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die“This book is hilarious. As if I wasn't already afraid the leave the house. What's that? Brockway suggests the apocalypse doesn't knock? What if I cower under a desk? Well, damn. I might as well have another nacho.” —Garth Sundem, author of The Geeks’ Guide to World Domination
