Irreverent and funny; some history

by jenniferheise (WorldCat user published 2007-06-21) Fair Permalink
Frank Muir lives up to the title in this book, and has also done his homework about the history of the bath. However, this light read has some weaknesses in its history, and the lack of source attribution is problematic in extent.
