Interesting book of celebrity death

I found myself hardly able to put this huge book down once I started it. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, some of the facts of the book are wrong, but overall I found it to be an interesting read. If you are into the true crime genre and are interested in celebrities, then this is the book for you! It proves also that just because you are rich and famous that doesn't exclude you from having something tragic and unexpected happen to you. Enjoy!

A Curious Book

I'd like to know the story behind the publication of this book, if there is one. It is one of the most fascinating, engrossing books I have read, yet the editing/proofreading is just atrocious. It's as if the authors wrote their first draft and the copy person grabbed it from their hands and dashed it down to the typesetting office in an effort to make the 5:00 train. While much of the language is obviously British, and therefore some of the spellings are variations of American spellings, there are words that are just flat out wrong, including wrong meanings, verb tenses, spellings, etc. However, all of that doesn't negate the incredible fascination of the stories told and the details in the telling. The authors obviously know their stuff, and they provide much more of the facts than we ever got in the papers. Fun stuff.
