"Until you read this, you really won't know sh*t." --"Publisher's Weekly"
"This is a rare book in that it offers something for everyone on your Christmas book list: the epidemiologist, the economist, the microbiologist, the anthropologist, sociologist and historian. The classicist will appreciate the numerous knowledgeable references to Roman, Greek and Babylonian culture and mythology, the literary scholar the etymologies and derivations, as well as the quotations from Blake." --Tim Sly, "Literary Review of Canada"
"[A]stonishingly readable and interesting." --"Svenska Dagbladet"
