" Yes. I read this, and I am still wondering why. I guess I should have taken the title as a warning. The less I say, the better. " Bruce Nordstrom said.
" For anyone wanting a quick read on how hard life was back in the Roman days, this is a nice book. The illustrations aren't much, but it does give resourceful information. " Duane said.
" Living up to the series title, these books expose the nasty side of history. Each title opens with a brief overview and time line, followed by two- to three-page chapters that discuss the dirty and disgusting conditions that were prevalent in the past. Topics include excretion and sanitation, spoiled food, grisly medical procedures, bug infestations, and early death. Large illustrations and photos, that are dramatic but not overly explicit, add to the texts. These books, which prove that the good old days never existed, are gross enough to be surefire hits.
