"If you thought that your bed was only good for sleeping in, having sex in, or dying in, then this book will disabuse you--in fact, it's so entertaining, it will keep you awake long into the night."--Paul Chrystal, author of In Bed with the Ancient Greeks and In Bed with the Romans

"This is a fascinating account of an important object that has not previously received the attention it deserves."--Chris Scarre, Durham University
