A little bit of history, a whole lot of fun! Color photos and descriptions of the (sometimes) porcelain pots are arranged geographically, generally by continent. From a thatched palm leave toilet on stilts in Panama which drains directly into the sea to a "pee tree" in an Alberta, Canada campsite to the pair of 24-carat solid gold toilets in a Hong Kong store, this book brings them all to you. Check out the kiddie loos from Izmir, Turkey on pages 214-215: a cute, purple kangaroo toilet and a turquoise smiling bear urinal. A delightful book!

This was a gift for my brother-in-law, but I had a hard time not going through it myself. It is good for travelers or those with a sense of humor. It is nice to be able to step from one's comfortable world and see what necesity inspires around the world.

It is crazy to see so many different bathrooms from all around the world. I bought this book to keep in my guest bathroom in my house. Every time we have someone over they comment on how great this book is. I have enjoyed flipping through it and always lose track of time when doing so. Fun book with a low price.
