Well, this was more interesting and less icky than you might think! The writing is great and I was interested for 3/4 of the book, then it launched into too much detail of programs in India and I started skimming. It's amazing how very important sanitation is to civilization. I had no idea how a huge percentage of the world lives and I am thankful to live in the United States and have enough money to have a home with plumbing!

I didn't find that many of my friends wanted to hear about this book over lunch! :-)

Rita I read a book about insects once and no one wanted to hear about it. I thought their crazy life cycles were fascinating. I'll find the book title.

Beverly I love entomology! Let me know if you figure out which book it was!
