There has been a wager that has existed underground for some time now - the Dead Pool. No longer a secret, the Dead Pool has reared its skeletal head out of the soil, and people everywhere are betting their cash on what celebrity they think will be the next to lie down and take the dirt nap.

Let's face it - we live in a culture that glorifies betting. Americans love to risk their money in all sorts of gambling endeavors: casinos, lottery tickets, bingo, and strangely enough, a bunch of dogs chasing rabbit fur attached to a fast moving stick. Gelfand and Wilkinson will provide you with the definite competitive edge needed to make all the intelligent bets on the deaths of others. You can even learn how to organize your own Dead Pool if there isn't one in your office already.

The Dead Pool includes lists compiled by the experts on whom the Grim Reaper currently has in his crosshairs, as well as profiling techniques which illustrate the telltale signs of impending death for a film star, athlete, rock musician or political leader. So read this book, stroke your chin, and place your bets.
