Bargain Book Copy

Dozens of the objects we use almost every day had surprisingly haphazard beginnings. Scotchgard was discovered when a scientist spilled part of an experiment on her shoe. Potato chips were first cooked by a chef who was furious at a customer who complained that his fried potatoes were not thin enough. Forty of these unusual stories, along with hilarious cartoons and weird and funny facts, make up this fun-filled book.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain Book Copy, purchased direct from various publishers as excess inventory or a store return. The book is in new condition and will, in most cases, have a small dot or line on the edge of the book. It may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In a rare case the actual cover for a book might not match the one in the display picture. For more information please refer to the information page Our Product.

Due to many publishers not providing a Canadian list price the Canadian list price shown is an estimation based upon the US list price multiplied by the current exchange rate.
