It's a depressing thought, but one day you will die. All living things die. This essay deals with the topic of death. It covers a number of famous poisoners and the poisons they dispatched to their victims. In addition to the mechanisms of drug action, the subject of apoptosis (programmed cell death) is also discussed. This essay is therefore a resource which can aid students and the layperson interested in drug/toxin action. There is also some humor.

Fascinated by science.
Oh, there are so many ways we may die. So many elements, etc. that are lethal to us, and many are all around us. Listen, enjoy (!?). And be very careful about what you breathe, drink, or eat. You might consider a Xanax after listening to this thoroughly impossible to stop audiobook.
"Some Nerd Love - Great little novel"
amazingly well-written. Full of stories from the author about death, toxins, and in general, things that can kill from a chemist perspective
Doctor Hall is truly an amazing character, that not only knows his chemistry, but also knows how to write it into a compelling text.
Well worth a reading, specially if you like science.
