  • Extraordinary Information!

    I bought this for me & my husband and we find it a very interesting read! If you're curious about the origins of everyday products, this book is for you. Although repetitive at times, it is fact filled and clears up a few myths (remember hearing about Thomas Crapper? Not true). Overall, a good read.
