Mobituaries: Great Lives Worth Reliving by Mo Rocca

CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca shares his love of obituaries and by creating his own for people (and places/things) who have long fascinated him. From names you’ll recognize like Audrey Hepburn and Thomas Jefferson to dragons, Mo Rocca brings these deceased people back to life by sharing highlights of their greater and lesser known accomplishments. And if you didn’t already know it, Mo also has a Mobituaries podcast.

The author is a great storyteller and delivers his story with a good mix of facts and light humor that make this book both enjoyable and educational.
