Product description

Doomsday. Judgement Day. Day of Reckoning. Apocalypse...As the man with the sandwich board says, 'The end of the world is nigh'. Whether it be an Act of God, a natural event, or as the result of a man made disaster, never has the threat of annihilation been more pressing than right now. "A is for Armageddon" is a brilliantly funny, thoroughly factual and stunningly illustrated guide to disaster - from the rise of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse", animal zoonosis and erupting super volcanoes to animal flatulence, obesity and World War III, from economic collapse and the gulf stream collapse, to genetic modification and the collapse of causality - accompanied by a critical time line for when we might expect to die - now, soon, later, or too late...it's already started. A veritable panoply of impending doom, this catalogue of disasters will inform and delight in equal measure. Just don't read it before bedtime.
