The book covers food, drink, clothing, technology, toys, cars/vehicles, drugs and cosmetics plus some other stuff that's harder to pigeonhole into an easy category.
I'm sure nowadays you can look all this up on Wiki so it's just if you want a light easy read all in one place on products.
But this is written well with a little bit of comedy mixed in. Great bathroom or coffee table reading.
