A non-religious and well-researched look at what is most likely to kill all of mankind is in the End Times: A Brief Guide to the End of the World.
There are eight threats to mankind’s continued existence described within this book:
- Nuclear Bombs
- Climate Change
- Artificial Intelligence
- Aliens (from another planet, sorry Mr. President)
Which of the above is more likely and which should be left to fiction? This book will attempt to answer that question.
End Times: A Brief Guide to the End of the World would be a good reference for thriller writers (I’m looking at you Clive Cussler) or screenwriters of disaster movies (RIP Irwin Allen). It is also an interesting read for open-minded readers. Even though the topic is inherently grim, the author manages to infuse some hopeful notes. 4 stars! More if you are a writer looking for ideas.
Thanks to Hachette Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
