Evan Morris reveals the fascinating, often wacky stories behind 125 brand names. Organized by product categories - food and drink, clothing, technology, toys, and assorted bright ideas, cars, and drugs and cosmetics - the story of each product is told, complete with sidebars that highlight, brand names that have become "genericized" (aspirin); a "What Were They Thinking?" honor roll of strange and often disastrous product names (Edsel); what happens when good brand names go bad (Kool-Aid after the Jonestown mass suicide); and debunked urban legends (the combination of Pop Rocks and soda that, was rumored to be lethal).
