From the world leader in fascinating facts and amusing true stories comes a book about how things are made…and you should be glad that you don’t have to make them yourself.
For more than 25 years, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has helped you learn amazing things you didn’t know (and amazing things you didn’t know you didn’t know). Now, Uncle John will show you how to do things you didn’t know how to do…and probably shouldn’t ever, ever, ever actually do.
It’s Uncle John’s How to Toilet Train Your Cat A new approach to survival guides and how-to books, this book provides step-by-step instructions for how to make commonplace items. If you’re expecting “how to make your own beef jerky,” think again. This book shows how the “sausage is made”—literally.
