Summary
"Death comes in many forms--sometimes peaceful, sometimes tragic, sometimes dramatic... and at other times just plain weird. In History's Weirdest Deaths, you'll read the true stories of more than a hundred people who met their end in a bizarre fashion. Each cautionary tale is unique. Meet the victims of stunts that went horribly wrong, ordinary people who made boneheaded blunders, and famous figures who realized too late that celebrity isn't a cure for stupidity"--
