Product Description
Elvis died on one, and Charles V was born on one. Although we use them every day, most of us know very little about toilets. This unique history contends that civilization began, not with the written word, but with the toilet. As the ultimate bathroom book, The Porcelain God offers an amusing diversion.

I picked up this book because Sandy was reading it to use for book talks during school visits. Filled with all kinds of wonderful useless trivia, this book is entertaining, informative, and a fast read.
