Publisher Comments:

Whether youre a history buff, or you just like reading great stories, youll see the past in a whole new light after reading Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader Plunges into History. Uncle John uncovers the truth behind some of historys most persistent myths, flushes out information you were never taught in school, and gives history fans something they can really digest. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). With more than 11 million books in print, the Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader series is the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the world.

Where else could you learn about the 10 most forgotten people in history, mistakes that led to great discoveries, and how a fish had a hand (er, fin) in beating Napoleon? Uncle John rules the world of information and humor, so get ready to be thoroughly entertained. Read all about…

The short history of underwear

Odd deaths of famous figures

Abe Lincoln, fashion icon

The real Lady Godiva

Royal inbreeds and promiscuous popes

The true story of Braveheart

And much more!
