Did Thomas Crapper Really Invent the Toilet? by Catherine O'Reilly
Book DescriptionWhich came first, sliced bread or the toaster? When did most people begin wearing deodorant? Who invented the electric blanket? Catherine O Reilly tackles questions such as these with a keen curiosity and well-honed writing skills. Her ability to turn any normal home into a jungle of history, invention, and technological wonder is a treat. For fans of Schott s Original Miscellany and The Book of Useless Information , O Reilly s Did Thomas Crapper Really Invent the Toilet? is another smart and quirky look at miscellaneous items. Learn the real histories of the blender, the fire extinguisher, the cheese grater, the clock radio, deodorant, Post-its, fabric softener, and, of course, the toilet. These are the unknown stories of everyday items that we take for granted."
