No.Short storyline: A history of history in an easy to read timeline format.Notes for the reader: Funny stories, interesting facts, and worth the time it takes to read. Really makes think about the progress, or lack thereof, of medicine and science through the ages!
review 2: Really enjoyable collection of little known science throughout the ages. Easy to read in an alm

Read a few pages before bed without much danger of getting "hooked" into reading past a reasonable bed time. :) A heads up that a handful of entries are not for the delicate of stomach or animal lovers (I skipped the animal experiment entries). less

Completely useless, as advertised! But lots of fun in small doses.
