Flushed: How the Plumber Saved Civilization

W. Hodding Carter

Dewey Subject Codes: 696 Professional - Technical
Description:  – Information about this book has been viewed 955 times, 7 times previously this month.
Can you imagine what the world would be like if we still used outhouses, even in the cities? Can you imagine the disease, the smell, the filth? We have to be very glad that Thomas Crapper invinted the flush toilet. And that the community built sewers to take away the result.

This book is a light, casual and humorous look at what we all know about but of which we rarely speak. Somehow the fact that we all use 'the facilities' every day is something just not discussed. It takes a book like this one to remind you of one of the basic facts of life.

The book isn't all light and comedy, the discussion of the new Boston treatment facilities, for instance, is quite detailed, and reasonable technical. And indeed, sewage treatment is a thing that has made civilization possible.

I imagine other reviewers have used this before, but I've go to close by saying this is the perfect book to read when you're sitting on the pot.

* You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it easy to use the more common ways of searching.

1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.

From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.

2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.

3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.

4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
