Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody: The Terrifyingly Real Ways the World Wants You Deadby Robert Brockway
Synopses & Reviews
Just when you thought you'd accepted your own mortality... Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody is bringing panic back.
Twenty illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing essays reveal the chilling and very real experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that soon could — or very nearly already did — bring about the end of humanity. In short, everything in here will kill you and everyone you love. At any moment. And nobody's told you about it — until now:
"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
In 25 illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing essays, Robert Brockway introduces us to the incredible but very real scientific experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that could bring about the end of all humanity.
