Reviews

"A lucid and provocative book."--New York Times Book Review "A mother lode of valuable information . . . There ain't no flies on this book."--Wall Street Journal "[Rubbish!] 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 "An almost joyous iconoclasm about a vexatious subject."--Boston Sunday Globe "[Rathje and Murphy] cull from the record astonishing data to counter many a myth. . . . A refreshing treatment of a subject not usually associated with refreshment."--Kirkus Reviews "This lively study is an informative and often entertaining introduction to the science of garbology."--Contemporary Sociology "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
