Believe it or not, sometimes the best place to get a quicy summary of a book is to go to a bookstore web site. Here is the summary from amazon:
This book is pop culture history about the less known points in history. It seeks to provide background and information that most of us would find interesting, but hardly mainstream.
Please help, if you want you can just give a summary for it chapter by chapter, ther are only 6.I read it, but I only actually skimmed it:(
