A significant number of entries and a commendable effort. But lacks sources on many. And some are (admitably by the author) constructed or reconstructed -- in other words not the actual words -- a quote made up by the author based the circumstances and info about the death. This can lead to wrongly attributted quotes, etc. This was a huge drawback for me for a non-fiction book that is set up like a reference book.
