Here at last is the definitive source book on the true causes of death of public figures - providing the ultimate demise of heroes and icons, politicians and celebrities, inventors and explorers, business leaders and sports figures, as well as the unlikely endings of radicals, murderers, feminists, Nobel Prize winners, and others. Organized thematically, "The Portable Obituary" examines revealing details about how famous persons deeds, intimate habits, and lifestyles - good and bad - ultimately influenced their mode of death and, in due course, determined their role in history and culture. By using archaeological records, published obituaries, techniques of forensic interpretation - "The Portable Obituary" is a one-of-a-kind reference work.
