This was a great book for its kind, much better than, say Why Do Men Have Nipples, for example. The question and answer format makes for easy reading in little spurts which is nice for my tired mommy brain! I mostly found the information accurate and interesting. As a naturopathic doctor, I was especially fascinated to learn that bowel movements are 2/3 bacteria and only 1/3 fiber, cholesterol, bile salts, food bits, etc! That is A LOT of bacterial material! My only quibble is with the title. The author cites a doctor who actually encourages eating boogers and his argument is more compelling than the author's opinion on why not to!
