A great history of characters,
This review is from: At Home: A short history of private life (Kindle Edition)I confess to being a big fan of Bill Bryson. Whilst his travel books are good, I find his historical and academic type books generally excellent.
This is a book about the history of domestic items but is more so about the historical characters that invented and shaped our current domestic world.
Splendidly entertaining, amusing and informative, this is an absolute must buy.
