Publisher Comments:

With this all-new 21st edition, Uncle Johns Unsinkable Bathroom Reader, Uncle John and his crack staff of writers prove that after more than two decades in the business, theyre still at the top of their game. 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.

Who else but Uncle John could tell you about the tapeworm diet, 44 things to do with a coconut, and the history of the Comstock Lode? Uncle John rules the world of information and humor, so get ready to be thoroughly entertained. Read all about…

7 (underwater) places to see before you die

Medical miracles (and medical horrors)

The godfather of fitness

High-tech underwear

The CSI effect

And much more!

Synopsis:

Uncle John's Unsinkable Bathroom Reader is jam-packed with over 500 pages of humor, history, science, pop culture, and more.

With Uncle Johns trademark trivia, obscure facts and figures, forgotten histories, and unknown origins, this book provides readers with hours of fun.
