I have all the bathroom readers and this one, in my view, is the best one so far. If you liked the others, you'll like this one. And if you don't have any of the others, this is a good place to start.

I bought this book for my husband last year as a Christmas gift.. it is STILL in our bathroom. We have read and re-read it time and again. This year I'm getting another one. It makes a great gift and believe it or not.. very interesting conversations. Oh ya, and tons of laughs! definately 5 stars.. if not higher.

Highly entertaining. This book is filled with more pedantic and esoteric material than you can imagine. I couldn't recommend it higher. In fact, I recommend it to all my friends as a great book for airplane trips, waiting around, and even a coffee table book.

Format: Paperback
The reputation of Uncle John, despite all his trips to the bathroom remains untarnished. This is where it's at when it comes to weird facts, pointless trivia and astounding information.
Great for starting conversations and suprising friends, -bad- for writing term papers ("Jake, you cited that Pontius Pilate is from England from 'The Bathroom Reader'?" "Uhh, yeah.").
But as long as you don't write a paper you should be fine. I treasure this book, along with its other companions, in my hallowed grounds (a shelf next to the toilet), a great gift. Period.

The Bathroom Reader Institute always puts out fun loaded books. The Great Big Bathroom Reader is no exception. I get a laugh out of many of their entries. These are not text books of course, just trivia for entertainment.

I love sharing these with others after I'm done reading them. They're so interesting and sometimes find myself laughing out loud at the humorous way Uncle John puts things.
