Reviews

"Mixing science, humor, and grossly irresponsible self-experimentation, Evans paints a vivid picture of how bad habits built the world we know and love."--David Wong, author of John Dies at the End "Evans's goal is to investigate and illuminate the human tradition of merriment and debauchery, which he does with tact, humor, and insight."--Publishers Weekly "An engaging and compelling assemblage of pop culture and cultural anthropology (pop cultural anthropology?), an exploration of the growth of civilization via things that our own culture has in many ways declared taboo. This is one of the more entertaining books, fiction or nonfiction, or whatever, that you'll read this year."--Allen Adams, The Maine Edge
