"Carter is unfailingly good company throughout this genuinely underground history." -- Will Blythe, author of To Hate Like This Is to Be Happy Forever "Hodding Carter has enough charm to fill a toilet tank, and I don't mean the new 1.6 gallon low-flush. No one else could make me laugh heartily while reading about the miraculous lead pipes of ancient Bath.... Got to love it all." -- Mary Roach, author of Stiff and Spook "Delightful." -- Los Angeles Times "Witty, enlightening, and just plain fun to read." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
