Well, now you do. You’re welcome.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You might even throw up!
Do not, repeat not, read this book at mealtimes or if you’re even just a little peckish. You have been warned.
But seriously, this book is a very engaging and rather witty master class in poo. From being a poo detective, to the general world of poo including who-what-when-where-how and why, to meeting poo scientists and experts from all walks of life, this text covers all manner of content that is indeed gross, stinky and very, very interesting.
The book looks quite beautiful for something so disgusting. It’s very well credentialed and is laid out perfectly – almost magazine style – in bite-sized chunks with plenty of colour and a welcome variety of information. Interesting photographs and delightful artworks accompany the terrifying text to heighten the interest and embellish some of the more descriptive passages. Pun intended.
A valuable and very funny resource book complete with a Grossary of terms, it will definitely be a hit wherever it appears on a bookshelf. And don’t forget to test your poo IQ with the Most Disgusting Quiz online at CSIRO’s website.
