Tell me how you die, and I will tell you who you are… and the period you have lived through.

Dr. Pelloux is attracted by a particular patient: half dead and incredibly famous. What if their agony told us more about their era than the era itself? From this hypothesis, Dr Pelloux undertakes new and exciting research, at once both medical and historical: retracing, with as much clinical and socio- political precision as possible, the last moments of these great characters of History. The result is thirty profiles in chronological order, from Jesus to Churchill, in a style full of verve and compassion. We encounter kings, revolutionaries, writers and acrobats, to name but a few. As the allusion to Molière in the title shows, this book has serious import, without being didactic and dry; it proves that learning is fun.
