With universal appeal (everyone poops, after all), this witty, illustrated description of over two dozen dookies (each with a medical explanation written by a doctor) details what one can learn about health and well-being by studying what's in the bowl. A floater? It's probably due to a buildup of gas. Now think back on last night's dinner, a burrito perhaps? . . .All the greatest hits are here: The Log Jam, The Glass Shard, The Deja Poo, The Hanging Chad . . . the list goes on. Sidebars, trivia, over 60 euphemisms for number 2, and unusual case histories all make this the ultimate bathroom reader. Who knew you could learn so much from your poo?

everyone should read this book, something that, like sex, no one ever wanted to talk about, but which held mystery ever and wonder, however indecorous - someone finally has lifted the lid on feces - bravo

A very funny book about a taboo subject. It is very thorough, but does not include the tear called a fissure caused by constipation which requires a cream with medication to cure. It is worth reading however and this book motivates to eat more fibre.

To be quite honest - I had never thought that a book whose subject matter was about, of all things, poo, would ever turn out to be as entertaining and humorous as "What's Your Poo Telling You?" has inevitably turned out to be.

As small and compact as this book is, it is sure packed solid (pardon the pun) with all sorts of fascinating facts & figures about the human bowel movement.

I certainly congratulate author Josh Richman for taking on the challenge of writing such an informative book about a subject (like poo) that has been totally taboo for ages and ages.

Whether you find it a pain or a pleasure - Just remember, when it comes to taking a poo, you are not alone. (Everybody's doing it. Sometimes up to three times a day!).

Through this illustrated book's informative and often humorous discussion of poo's diversity in shapes, sizes, colors and smells, its authors hope to bring understanding to the reader on the inner workings of the gastro-intestinal tract and, thus, enlighten all of us pooers on the essential role that our crap plays in our physical and mental state of well-being.

Find out the answers to such fascinating questions as - What causes some poo to float? and, What's the deal with corn, anyways?.

So, keep in mind, what authors Josh Richman & Anish Sheth are telling you about the "Power of Poo" ain't no sh*t!

Hear, Ye! Hear, Ye! - For anyone who's ever been even slightly curious about their excrement (aren't we all?) - Here's a witty, little, illustrated book of facts and figures that will tell you, plain and simple, everything that you've ever wanted to know about your poo, but were afraid to ask.

From Hershey Squirts, to Dingleberries, to Pebble Poo, to the Lincoln Log, if your butt-hole could actually talk, here's an old, familiar tune that it just might happily whistle out some day - "Beans! Beans! The Musical Fruit!"

Be sure to check out all of this book's poo-riffic highlights and find out just how many times an average person farts in a day. (Fascinating stuff, eh?)

As well, the "Poo in the Animal Kingdom" section is sure to delight one and all with its fecal-facts about those cute, little critters in the forest.

So, when it comes down to this here book on the study of poo (and after all has been said & done), I think that there's plenty of reason to get "anal" about it - Don't you?

I swear, that after reading this book, you'll never, ever look at your poo in the same way again.
