The Big Necessity

Genre: Science and Technology, Nonfiction; Author: Rose George; Publisher: Metropolitan

Thoughts about bodily waste usually begin and end at the bathroom door: It’s not a favorite topic of conversation.

While not a traditional bathroom read, it’s a persuasive volume — if you’ve got the stomach for it. B
