The questions to many befuddling moments of history are answered in this extensive compendium, from the Romans who put perfume on their pet dogs and horses to the ancient Egyptians who walked for miles barefoot, carrying their sandals, only to put them on when they reached their destination. In a laughable review of the past, it asks how the human race has gotten to where we are today, and, more importantly, whether it was worth the trouble. What have we achieved since the dawn of time, and what have we managed to screw up? With the same charm as the rest of the Shite series, this tome is guaranteed to amuse, entertain, and—who knows?—inform in equal measure.
