    Great book

    From the Bathroom Institute, come another good book. Filled with interesting stories and facts. This volume focus mainly on USA historical less know facts, which is great if you live in America, but less for international readers. I would love more stories from all over the world though. Also many articles come in two and even three parts, which I found annoying. But never the less a great book for when you mean business. I recommend it.
