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.

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.
