Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't judge this book by its cover Please do not judge this book by its cover. Somewhere at OUP is someone with a red shoe fetish who keeps putting them on the cover of my book. This book is much more interesting that its cover - funny, entertaining, and informative. There is also a new chapter on the sociology of the environment that I hope student readers will like.
