"Read this! ." That's what you tell him the next time he snatches up his Sports Illustrated and retreats to his private haven, the smallest room in the house. Then you sit back and watch the makeover unfold. In an effort to lend him a greater air of sophistication, you've discreetly placed a copy of an amazing book titled 'The Great American Bathroom Book, Volume 1' next to the commode. And before hubby can think to ask where it came from, he'll already have dipped into several two-page summaries of classic works that make up the bulk of the bulky book, skimmed a brief biography of one of its featured history-makers, glanced through a page or two of its `Trivia To Learn By' library and soaked up a few of its witty and wise quotes and anecdotes. In short, he'll be both enthroned and enthralled.
And when he finally emerges from his porcelain library, his mind crammed with facts and ideas - fully flushed with literacy, if you will - he'll immediately want to impress you with his newfound knowledge of books, of people, of business, of the world. . . . Yes, believe it or not, he may actually sit down and talk to you!
Once again `The Great American Bathroom Book, Volume 1' has come to the rescue. Think all literary tomes have to be stuffy and longwinded?

In this day and age, who has the time and patience - or ideal setting, for that matter - to do so?
With its array of non-stuffy, non-longwinded literary distillations, your man can dip in and out of this book at a whim, picking up easily-absorbed book-learning and snippets of knowledge without feeling as if he's drowning in information. And, over time, as the transformation takes full effect, GABB may even find its way into your bedroom (not a bad thing at all!) or be smuggled into his workplace to crack open during breaks. Within mere months, these condensed, crash-course, water-cooler renderings could even earn him the title of designated office genius.
Sitters and thinkers will be impressed by the edition's smart-looking softcover wrapped around a whopping 608 literacy-filled pages; combined, the book exudes a timeless, classic elegance.
