An intriguing book from 1978 called “Cannibal Soup*” The cover features the sight of sixteen naked and grinning men and women packed into an overflowing redwood hot tub. Wacky, irreverent, unexpected, and filled with brilliant illustrations and photos, this self-professed “Hot Tub Bible” provides advice when and how to get the best from a hot tub.

Cannibal Soup guides novice soakers through the set up, maintenance and enjoyment of their hot tubs. From “A quick dip into the history of bathing” to “Throw those sleeping pills away,” each chapter details the how-to’s and please-do’s of hot tub culture in the late 70s.’
