"A mother lode of valuable information . . . There ain't no flies on this book." --"Wall Street Journal""It demolishes myths that hamper our ability to act sensibly; as a nice bonus, it entertains as it goes about its business." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review""Readers will be impressed by Rathje and Murphy's delightfully fresh take on the human foibles and the garbage heaps of history." --"Washington Post Book World""A lucid and provocative book." --"New York Times Book Review""An almost joyous iconoclasm about a vexatious subject." --"Boston Sunday Globe"
