Taking the Piss : A Potted History of Pee, Paperback

Taking the Piss : A Potted History of Pee Paperback

Illustrated by Jolyon Troscianko


Broadcast as an award winning radio-programme on BBC Radio 4 under the playful title of "Taking the Piss out of London", this work by much-admired author and presenter Adam Hart-Davis takes the reader on a fascinating tour of an altogether different kind.

The scientific side of this work is presented in the author's own clear and engaging style, and is filled with the charm of someone who clearly loves his subject.

This is a funny and compulsive work filled with anecdotes and tales, from Marilyn Monroe to the Victorians, together with some exciting discoveries about an area with which we are all passingly familiar!
