About the book:

If you wonder what fantastic events the next millennium might hold, projections by the legendary French seer Nostradamus may hold the answers. Nostradamus is reputed to have had prophetic visions for the years 1555 through 3797, and according to many interpretations several of these visions have come to pass. This colorful book is full of predictions "fulfilled" and guesses as to what's coming as we round the year 2000. Pictures of real-life events and interesting historical snatches make Nostradamus a worthwhile read for skeptics as well as believers. And if Nostradamus's seership doesn't intrigue you, his sense of humor will: When a pack of grave robbers pried open his coffin in the year 1700 anticipating the fabled treasures thought to accompany prophets to doomsday, they found him treasureless, but wearing a gold medallion with the letters MDCC, the Latin equivalent of 1700. A man capable of posthumous practical jokes is bound to make you laugh at the coming millennium, even as his predictions scare you. --Courtenay Kehn
