"The creator of the best-selling How They Croaked shares the stories behind 14 epic failures to shine a light on the darker side of select historical events, from Montezuma II's fatal error of mistaking a conqueror for a god to Isaac Newton's miscalculation of turning from science to pursue alchemy." http://www.libraryaware.com/996/NewsletterIssues/ViewIssue/67314d73-b332-4408-8732-ec53459f86e3?postId=63bb335c-0042-4c5a-b583-94cdcc097bd0
