It was worth buying. It was a one night read.

I was surprised at the scope of information that the author provided about the celebrities. Not only did he cover a brief autobiographt of the individual, he also gave a brief description of of his or her passing and directions of where the person was interred, if possible. Very thorough.

this is a good book on learning some brief but very interesting facts on the person of interest. If you want to visit their final resting place, it is definitely a must-have.
