"A mother lode of valuable information . . . There ain't no flies on this book." Wall Street Journal "It demolishes myths that hamper our ability to act sensibly; as a nice bonus, it entertains as it goes about its business." Los Angeles Times Book Review "Readers will be impressed by Rathje and Murphy's delightfully fresh take on the human foibles and the garbage heaps of history." Washington Post Book World "A lucid and provocative book." New York Times Book Review "An almost joyous iconoclasm about a vexatious subject." Boston Sunday Globe
