  • How Plumbers Saved the World

    I just got through reading:

    "Flushed: How the Plumber Saved Civilization". By W. Hodding Carter. New York: Atria Books, c. 2006.

    I liked it. It includes a fairly interesting history of sewege treatment and water supply from ancient times. It is written in a very casual mannor.

    Anyone else read it?
