LOS ANGELES – Dave Freeman, co-author of “100 Things to Do Before You Die,” a travel guide and ode to odd adventures that inspired readers and imitators, died after hitting his head in a fall at his home. He was 47.
The success of “100 Things” inspired dozens of like-minded books, with titles such as “100 Things Project Managers Should Do Before They Die” and “100 Things Cowboys Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die.”
Freeman died Aug. 17 after the fall at his Venice home, his father, Roy Freeman, told the YahooNewson Monday. —
I wonder if “Watch Where the Hell You’re Going” was one of the 100 things on his list. Or, “Learn How Gravity Works.” No further details were provided on his accident, dammit.
P.S. The book on Cowboys fans should have been quite brief. How about “Choke”? Or “Bleed”?
