Previous edition: published as Avoid being a Mayan soothsayer! 2007.

You are the son of a Mayan soothsayer, living near the city of Copan in about AD 710.

Becoming a soothsayer yourself means you could become an important man.

However, you'd rather stay in your peaceful village being a farmer - get something wrong as a soothsayer and you'll be sacrificed! "You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history.

The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived.

Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
