Reviews

"Happily, the British Jamaican nurse Mary Seacole gets a small tribute for her work treating cholera; both she and John Snow, the first public-health detective, deserve to be better known, as does the Elizabethan inventor of the flush toilet... A fascinating history of the porcelain god and other sanitary (and unsanitary) practices."
"Sure to elicit both groans and giggles in equal measure... This STEM selection is flush with high-interest appeal."
