A Book in Review: Poplorica

Poplorica By: Martin J. Smith And Patrick J. Kiger
Non-FIction history, pop culture 236 pages
Book count: 42

First, about he title, it is a combination of Pop culture, lore and America. It is a book on how everday things were started and how things evolved from that. It includes 20 things, poeple and events that shaped modern life. It has everything fom why we have grass in our yards to the first computer mouse. It was a fun mix of things Some are ones that you may already know, such as the start of TV dinners and many are ones that I have never heard anything about before such as the wrestler that influenced people from Muhammad Ali to Marilyn Manson.
