I decided to read this book tonight because 1) I'm participating in a Read-a-thon this weekend, so I am mashing through books and 2) my hubby's college buddies are staying the weekend to pretend they are still 22 for a couple days and I thought I'd leave this one in the bathroom for them. ;)
In general, as a naturopathic doctor, I talk a lot more about pee and poo than the average person, so I thought this book would be right up my alley. Not a lot of new information here for me, but it is a pre ...more
Just like What's Your Poo Telling You?, this book is equally excellent! I learned many things about color, smell, and different rates of flow. Clear pee is, in general, a good sign and means you're well hydrated, which I did not know. There are also sections on poo, covering loose poo and its problems, and farts, including the reason we fart in the morning and the cause of frequent farting. It ends with dispelling body myths, a most interesting section! This book even answered the age old questi ...more
Despite this book's obviously gross topic of pee, once you get past that, the book is quite informative. It includes busted/verified myths, medical information on issues dealing with those bodily functions we all do, but can't stop giggling when thinking about them.

People might think this book is immature or a bit crass upon first look, but it's really full of useful information about your health. All that you ever wanted to know about your pee, poo, and farts - great follow-up to its #2, "What's Your Poo Telling You?"
While this book is informative, it is also very entertaining. The synonyms for various forms of bodily excretions make one chuckle, and the cartoon drawings are hilarious. Learning about this taboo subject couldn't be more fun in any other book! The authors did a great job.
Interesting, informative, and funny, but for the ladies in my family it was missing a vital chapter. Probably because the book was written by two men from Brown University! The juvenile humor lover in me loves where they attended college when juxtaposed with the topic! ;-)
