The title really says it all!! Details of the demise of close to twenty historical figures, including King Tut, Edgar Allan Poe, Beethoven and Galileo are just part of this book. Discover some of the not-so-helpful medical practices that were popular in times gone by and some intriguing aspects of mummification that may have escaped your notice until now. Not for the faint of heart.
