Absorbing read. The detail is fantastic - she provides obscure names, histories, etc. of all devices used for cleaning/bathing throughout the centuries. The book progresses from the farthest centuries right up to the present day, offering comparisons, social explanations for hygiene practices (or lack thereof!). A truly exhaustively researched book, and very well-written.
