Staff Reviews


The Ghost Map--a national bestseller from a few years ago--is touted as highly accessible, vastly entertaining, and very illuminating. The Washington Post has this to tempt you: “By turns a medical thriller, detective story and paean to city life, Johnson's account of the outbreak and its modern implications is a true page turner.”

Wow, I enjoyed the poop out of this book! The Ghost Map is FUN, informative and not for the faint of stomach. An examination of Cholora's horrific decent on London in the mid-1800s reveals fascinating patterns not only in the disease but also in human society, infrastructure, bacteria, the city itself, and, yes, poop (or night soil, excrement, nuisance... this book is a 19th century thesaurus for human waste).
