What would happen if you stuck your head into a nuclear particle accelerator? What if you jumped into an interstellar black hole, or slipped out of a deep-sea submarine wearing only a pair of Speedos? In And Then You're Dead: The world's most interesting ways to die, we'll give serious answers to these horribly interesting questions in a way a layperson can understand. Illustrated with straight-forward technical art and leavened by small doses of dry humor, the book will be both scientifically informative and gruesomely entertaining. Relying on the deeply human observation that things which actually happen compel little interest, there will be no discussion of heart attacks or car wrecks. But there will be plenty to learn about those people unfortunate enough to get swallowed by a whale.

For such an otherwise morbid topic, it sure was interesting! This book answers lots of questions that you generally wouldn't know you even wanted to ask. 10/10!
