Who is Mark Brady?

In chapter 4 a Mark Brady is mentioned. Apparently the Brady we never saw or heard of until now. Does anyone have the book? Perhaps a typo in the book. perhaps the reason why we never see a basement is because that is where the hideously deformed Mark Brady resides.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this book even though I am not a big Brady Bunch fan (wasn’t allowed to watch it as a child). I am surprised they didn’t get one of the Brady actors to narrate it, but the narrator they chose did a wonderful job. The analysis of the impact on pop-culture is interesting.
