Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader is a quirky, compulsively readable, and just-plain-fun compendium for the 68 % of Americans who read in the john--and anyone with a wacky sense of humor. Offbeat trivia, riddles, weird-but-true stories. Clueless criminals, like the guy who robbed two gas stations while wearing a court-ordered monitoring device. Strange inventions: electronic underwear that measures your vital signs, calls emergency services if necessary, and is machine-washable! Plus The Bare Facts, Spaced-Out Sports, and gross 18 th-century beverages, such as Cock Ale, a mixture of beer and chicken soup.

Synopsis:

From the cowboy companions of the Old West to elegant Kentucky Derby winners, Uncle John has collected enough facts and trivia to please the most demanding equine enthusiast. It's all here: the secrets of Secretariat, Affirmed, and other Triple Crown winners; horse records (the biggest, smallest, oldest, and fastest); what it takes to be a jockey; Austria's dancing Lipizzans; fictional and mythological horses from Black Beauty to Pegasus; the first American horse race; those high-stepping Budweiser Clydesdales; and much more.
