Item Details

Doomsday . . . Judgment Day . . .Day of Reckoning . . . The Apocalypse . . .As the man with the sandwich board might say, "The end of the world is nigh." Nobody knows for sure whether it will be an act of God, a natural event, or a man-made disaster that causes the final bell to toll for humankind, but it is surely primed and ready to clang.A Is for Armageddon is your ruthlessly clever and gorgeously hopeless guide to the possible-if not imminent-ultimate destruction of our civilization and planet. From animal flatulence to economic collapse to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse-from lethal genetic modification to runaway obesity, super volcanoes, and World War III-the seeds of our doom have been sown . . . and our most dire possible fates have been stunningly illustrated in this edifying and uniquely entertaining volume of inescapable horrors, fatal missteps, and the end of everything.
