Product Description

Review

"To dismiss Giulia Enders' work as a 'toilet book' would do it great injustice…its message is far from flippant." —The Guardian

(2015-06-26)

"This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner. ...Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister’s handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language."Self Magazine

(2015-06-26)

"With a great sense of humor and ample enthusiasm, Enders explains everything readers did and didn’t want to know about their innards ... this book defies boring."—Publishers Weekly

(2015-06-26)

"Gut's probe into the human digestive system might be seen as an earnest younger sibling to Gulp, Mary Roach’s 2013 investigation into the same subject. The comparison isn’t meant as a slight; Enders swaps out Roach’s knowing wryness with a kind of puplike enthusiasm for the complex mechanisms that convert food into a body’s energy and waste without our even thinking about it." ―The National Post

(2015-05-26)

"Enders’s wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched only by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject." ―The New York Times

(2015-06-19)

Really a good and easy read. Took me on a tour of my body that I didn't know existed. Although it is nothing to do as a diet book, it does give some good guidelines for healthy eating and what the good food does to your body as it make its journey through you. Just paying a little attention to what the author says and I lost 10 pounds in two weeks.

I first came across this exquisite little book in our local library. Breezily written by Dr. Guilia Enderes, who apparently is at home in German, English and Latin, explains what's going on "down there', "down there" meaning what we euphemistically refer to as "number 2". Amongst other things, I learned how to describe my bowel movements to my doctor via the Bristol scale, how to shop for probiotics, the usefulness of prebiotics, and in general what's happening in the entire digestive process.

The drawings alone are worth the price of the book.

I have spent last 15 years dealing with stomach issues. Gluten free, then grain free, MSG free, GMO free, sulfate free the list can go on. It would work for a while and then something would go wrong and I would have to find something else to free myself from. Exclusion days are over! It's all about inclusion now! Who knew about resistant starch and good gut bacteria?! 3 weeks into it and feeling so much better! I have added resistant starch to my dogs diet. Great results too! Book is written in very understandable and humorous language. Very informative. I can see the author of this book getting a Nobel Prize. PhD thesis she's working on can help a lot of people! Great job!

One of my favourite books! Bought extras to share with friends
Giulia writes in a way that makes the information easily accessible to all readers. The humour is better in the original (German), sometimes it was translated a little oddly but doesn't really effect the experience/reading

Fantastic book! One book that everyone should read. Full of information and very funny, a hard combination that Dr. Enders pulls off easily, even in translation. If you have GI problems, definitely get this book!

Loved the book. Have bought it for a few members of my family and have loaned my copy to friends as well. It is delightfully written, informative and great illustrations. A refreshing novel with a new concept to consider, the gut-brain.

What a fantastic book! Cleared a lot of details for me what is going on in our bodies. This was done in an easy way, using simple examples that everyone can relate to. Very witty illustrations as well. Just finished reading it, and I am ready to read it over again.
