Overview

Is 2012 our last year of existence? Is a killer planetary object on a collision course with Earth? What is the Mayan doomsday prophecy and should I go ahead and get one of those sweet car loans with a balloon payment in 2015?

The looming apocalypse has never been so much fun with this latest book in the acclaimed Pocket Guide series by Jason Boyett. Pocket Guide to 2012 approaches the 2012 doomsday phenomenon with the author's trademark blend of entertainment and education. Equally snarky and illuminating, it explores the history of mankind's end-times obsession, explains the origins of the 2012 prophecy, and investigates the predicted scenarios that will probably (not) lead to the extinction of humanity on or around December 21, 2012.

"Jason Boyett's Pocket Guides are smart and hilarious. And they're sneaky too: You don't realize how much you're learning because you're having so much fun."
--AJ Jacobs, author, The Year of Living Biblically and Drop-Dead Healthy

"The Pocket Guides are more fun than a plague of frogs, more satisfying than manna from heaven and way less expensive than attending seminary. Jason Boyett is a truly inspired and disturbed individual and for that I am grateful."
--Dan Merchant, writer/producer/director of Lord, Save Us from Your Followers

"Anyone with a curiosity about history and belief--and an ear for wry irreverence--should not miss out on these pithy, delightful volumes."
--Lauren Sandler, author, Righteous

"If there were a Pocket Guide to Jason Boyett, it would include words like Fearless, Deep, and Snarky. And did I mention funny? Oh my goodness this guy is funny."
--Dean Nelson, author, Quantum Leap, and director, Writer's Symposium by the Sea at Point Loma
