The biggest New Year's Eve in thousand years is coming around the bend. THE MILLENNIUM BOOK puts it all in perspective:
Life at the turn of the millennium, when people slept with their livestock and using a fork was regarded as a sign of bad character.
The best of the last thousand yearsfrom Roger Ebert's top ten films (Casablanca made it) to Gloria Steinem's ten greatest women (so did Amina, Queen of Zaria).
The worst of the last thousand years, from spouses (Isabella, She-Wolf of France, made it) to meals (so did the Donner Party).
Prophets whose forecasts for the year 2000 will launch a thousand talk show discussions, including Nostradamus (beware a fish carrying weapons), Edgar Cayce (Japan sinks), and people who expect a Belgian Antichrist.
How to plan a Millennium's Eve Party, including hotel rooms (one's been reserved since 1983), trips (who's going to the Great Pyramid on the QEII, and warnings about Millennial Overkill.
Predictions from the high school class of 2000ten-dollar bread, blue driveways, and castles for everybody.
And much more!
