    The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a dedicated group of knowledge hounds. Led for 25 years by the incomparable Uncle John, the BRI has perfected the art of searching the world for obscure, surprising, and often hilarious reading material -- and dispensing it in an easily-digestible format for readers of all ages. With dozens of titles and more than 11 million books sold, the BRI has become the world's bestselling bathroom-reading series. (And it's not just for people who like to read on the throne; these books are great ANYWHERE you put them!)
    Whether you’re a history buff, or you just like reading great stories, you’ll see the past in a whole new light after reading Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Plunges into History. Uncle John uncovers the truth behind some of history’s most persistent myths, flushes out information you were never taught in school, and gives history fans something they can really digest. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers’ Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). With more than 12 million books in print, the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series is the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the world.
     
    Where else could you learn about the 10 most forgotten people in history, mistakes that led to great discoveries, and how a fish had a hand (er, fin) in beating Napoleon? Uncle John rules the world of information and humor, so get ready to be thoroughly entertained. Read all about…
