Somewhat interesting but mostly disappointing
on April 5, 2010
With all 4 & 5 star reviews during the time of my purchase I expected this book to be highly entertaining and great. Perhaps it was my high expectations that created my disappointment.
There are good pictures with interesting commentary about toilets in the various lands where the toilets being photographed originate. However, there are many somewhat repetitive type photos of squat toilets (for example) just in various countries. If there were more variance in the types of squat toilets I'd get it, but many are identical with just a different background....say a bathroom that's dirty looking with pictures on the wall behind and another in a more clean, sterile looking environment or another that also has a sit toilet next to it. Big deal...
So - if you think you'll see really cool, quirky and creepy toilets don't bother. If you're okay with a multitude of thrones that are just in slightly different settings with commentary about the setting, then you might like the book.
