Kurzbeschreibung

Last Words of Notable People is a comprehensive reference work on "last words," "dying words" or "famous last words". A work of unprecedented scope and study...Covering the final utterances of noted people over the span of thousands of years and the entire globe; each person is presented with a relevant biographical treatment. Each entry is meticulously documented, citing best sources available. Connection or relation of cited sources to entries are presented. Accuracy or veracity of reputed "last words" is often questioned. Conflicting variations of reported "last words" for many entries are presented for the purpose of further research. Contains a detailed selected annotated bibliography of significant "last word" sources. Well indexed. The conclusion of more than a dozen years work and consultation of tens of thousands of sources, Last Words of Notable People is far and away the definitive compilation and treatment of recorded "last words" compiled to date. This is the soft cover book edition of the last words tome featured in John Green's "Dying Declarations" video. Last Words of Notable People was an Amazon Top 100 Bestseller in December 2011. For: Trivia Lovers, Biography and History Buffs, Nerdfighters, Academic and Public Library Reference Collections and Library Circulating collections

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a compilation! 24. September 2010
Von Ilona B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was amazed, for starters, at how thick this book is. (Were we about to hear from some overly wordy deathbed figures?) But instead, it's a comprehensive resource, containing not only a wide array of notable characters' last utterances, but brief and well-written descriptions of who they were and how and when they died. The research appears to have been meticulous, including notes on instances in which the person's actual last words are in dispute. Not something I plan to read cover to cover, but fun to dip into. My personal favorite so far: The words of Henry Graham Greene, "Will it be an interesting experience? Will I find out what lies behind the barrier? Why does it take so long to come?"

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Great Perhaps 28. Dezember 2011
Von Mikeala - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
While I fear I may be unable to write a review as lovely as those before me, I can agree with them that this book is no where short of amazing. When John Green posted about this book earlier in December, I jumped at the chance without much thought behind it. When it arrived today (sooner than I had expected) I was surprised by the over all size of it-- it made me fear that I was about to read a long winded introduction that took up a quarter of the book (as I've had the experiance before) but as I opened the book and started my journey, I found a short and sweet introduction and 634 pages of my guilty plessure. Something I just found while flipping through that is just as pleasing, is that the pages are recycled! That must be the lovely book smell I have been.. well, smelling! All in all, there is nothing I regret about this buy. -DFTBA

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! Money well spent! 28. Januar 2011
Von Tracey B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book kept us entertained on Christmas more than the games! It never got put down a minute without someone picking it up and reading something out loud to us. Very interesting and my youngest son has already used it as a resource for a college term paper. I know it appears pricey but it is by far the best book of this quality I have seen. I looked at several and so glad I spent the extra money for this one. Also includes some historic facts about the individuals that are included.

I ordered this product for my daughter and she LOVED it! She is a huge John Green fan and this book is one he recommended saying it is one of his favorites. My daughter was anxious to see what the excitement was all about and after she received it, she couldn't stop talking about it. I can say, firsthand, that the service was perfect!

An excellent, exhaustive, well-referenced compendium. Hugely entertaining and fascinating read. Pick up some great one-liners and excellent stories for your next cocktail party.
Highly recommend, and in Kindle format it's more portable, and easily searchable. And an INCREDIBLE value!
