    1. I had never thought about toilets in submarines until I read this book, now I cannot stop.The staggering amount of euphemisms that humans have come up with for relieving oneself demonstrates a level of human ingenuity surpassed only by our invention of double-trap siphonic action.This review would be longer, but I have to go shake hands with an old friend.

    2. This was surprisingly entertaining. It is all about toilets and how they have evolved over time, different types of toilets for different locations (submarines, space, etc.), and much more. There is even a segment with a list of the most significant times toilets have been in movies, which is not very long because usually people in movies never have to use the facilities.

    3. 162 pages about toilets? Actually very fascinating a tremendously appropriate bathroom reader. Very interesting and worth the read.

    4. I might never be done with this book. I read it in the bathroom and just pick pages out of it to read by flipping it open randomly. Good stuff. Glad I bought it.
