A hanukah present from my aunt and uncle, this book takes you through the ins and outs of poop. It is funny, practical and best of all perfect bathroom reading. It's also an excellent conversation piece and believe it or not has great references.

I can't recall exactly how long it took to read this book. We got it for Christmas. As you can imagine, it is parked next to the loo, so it gets read in instalments. It's quite amusing and has lots of interesting facts about poo, but unfortunately half the illustrations are sketches and not photos. This is weird. Surely, between the Internet and a worldwide network of zoos, the author could have tracked down actual photos of cougar shit and aardvark poop?

This book was hilarious yet informative. I picked it up at the store several years ago and took it home. I live in the city so the odds of me ever seeing the majority of the "BM's" in this book are not very likely. The pictures and /or illustrations are perfect for anyone who lives amongst more wildlife than a city dweller or for those involved in a lot of outdoor adventures. I loved this book.

not to copy off of Joe-- but my brother, Kevin, bought this book this summer in Idaho and gave it to his girlfriend, Perry. I read it three times and it told us a lot, but we saw a lot of Bison book and that was not in this book! I suggest this book to read!

An amusing, informative and surprisingly not gross little booklet on animal poop. It would be fun to take along on a walk through the woods, to see if you can identify any little critters based on their poo.
