4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 4 May 2013
By Roger Farnham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book, like the usual Bathroom Readers, is packed with short articles about weird things that people have invented. From an automatic hat-tipping device to a Star Trek inspired holodeck to a flame throwing anti-carjacking device to ancient music playing robots to a helmet that prevents aliens from reading your mind there is something here for everyone. If you like reading about odd machines and the even odder people who invented them you will enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Read! 17 May 2013
By Barryface - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book that I'd ordered for a birthday gift for a good friend, but I couldn't help myself by indulging in reading it in parts. It's a bit different from the other wonderful and wacky Uncle John's Bathroom Readers, but nevertheless, quite interesting. I think my friend (male) will enjoy it; it's the latest reader just published.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 6 May 2014
By Fran Bosch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For Years I have bought Uncle John Bathroom Readers and enjoyed them But lately they have become a disapointment. Not only has the size of the book gotten smaller but the number of pages has dropped to a quarter or fifth of older volumes. The writing and page design are not as good either as older volumes. I would venture to say that if this book was wriiten and placed in the style of an older Book it would be only 30 to 40 pages long yet it is same price as older volumes with 800 plus pages. While there were some inventions that I had not heard of most would be known by anyone that Reads online news or watches science and history channels on cable. Once again I was very disapponted in this book and would not reccomend.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun to read 24 May 2013
By crafty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loooove all of uncle john's books. fun trivia. a lot of interesting things to read about. I am an avid reader and I find these books to be very entertaining and full of little know facts. if you are a trivia buff these books are definitely worth your time. they have short paragraphs or 5 page stories. they are not long drawn out boring reads. I like to read them when I go to bed and sometimes I only get through 1 page because i'm tired, but I finish a subject with that one page. sometimes I read 20 or more pages and learn a lot at one time. highly recommend to any trivia lover.
4.0 out of 5 stars My husband likes this book... 20 Sept. 2013

My husband likes this book...way more than I do. I just don't care that much about WEIRD inventions, but it seems to be right up my hubby's alley. Who knew? Well, since I bought it for him, I'm glad he likes it! You can "look inside" before you buy it. I would recommend you doing that if you have any doubts about it.
