More About the Author

Deuce Flanagan, son of renowned New York plumber, Ham Flanagan, is currently pursuing his doctorate of scatological studies at the University of Minneapolis. Inspired by numerous children's books from his childhood that carefully taught him that it was "okay to poop," Flanagan wrote the first ever children's poop book for adults, Everybody Poops 410 Pounds per Year, winner of the fourth annual Golden Loaf Award for Feces-Related Literature.

Currently, Flanagan is living in Cappadocia, Turkey, compiling the first ever coffee table book on the toilets of the Ottoman Empire.

It might be smelly, but poop is fascinating. Just ask any kid who has read or been read to EVERYONE POOPS by Taro Gomi. The discussion of such a topic can easily lead to toilet humor, but when you're talking about poop, that's to be expected. EVERYBODY POOPS 410 POUNDS A YEAR is kind of the adult version of EVERYONE POOPS. It's a tasteful, yet humorously illustrated book full of facts about poop. Through a series of illustrated diagrams, the book shows what happens to your poop after you flush it. It also tells you what different colors and shapes of poop mean, why you can see corn in your poop, the things people used to use before toilet paper, and whether or not you can use your poop for fuel. The two tidbits I found most fascinating were that:

1. When horses were still the major source of transportation, there were 100,000 horses in New York City that produced 2.5million pounds of manure a day. In the winter the city built up an interesting mixture of snow and manure that raised the street levels up to five feet. That's why the buildings in the historic district have lifted, second-story stoops.

2. The Chicago River used to flow into Lake Michigan. However, the Chicago River is also where the city used to dump all of its waste. This was a problem because Lake Michigan is where they got their water. So, instead of actually dealing with their sewage problem, the people reversed the course of the Chicago River so it no longer flowed into Lake Michigan, but eventually flowed into the Mississippi River instead. Talk about being caught up s*#t creek without a paddle.

I thoroughly enjoyed EVERYBODY POOPS 410 POUNDS A YEAR. I found it entertaining and educational. It's a great "adult kid's book" (as the blurb on the back says), but I just wish it were a little longer.

I sent this book to a family member who was having serious digestive problems as a funny diversion from the medical issues she was facing.
This book ended up being really quite informative as well as funny. She ended up giving it to the office/hospital staff where her colonoscopy was done.
I know, too much information. The nurses and staff loved the book!! they're keeping it in their office. It was just the right "medicine" my family member needed.
We learned a lot of things we didn't know and got some good chuckles!

I got this book for my brother after ordering "Everyone Poops" for his 3 y/o son. I'm a huge sucker for these fact books. This one has fantastic illustrations that go with some really interesting, gross and funny facts about the bathroom you never thought to ask (or wanted to know :)). All around totally worth the $$. I just wish it had more facts!

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my father-in-law, who talks about his poop all the time. It is hilarious as a coffee-table book - so funny that my inlaws' house guests took it to bed with them and they were up laughing half the night.

Bought this for my poop-obsessed teenager. Very funny! It had the intended impact when it was opened! Grossed out, but laughing!

My 7 year old just called me into the bathroom to investigate some red color in his poop. After a few seconds, we determined it was from the food coloring from his red velvet shake he had at Burger King last night. But then he said, "But it could have meant I had bleeding in my upper intestines. It's good that you checked it out". I was initially amazed that he knew this at his age, until he reminded me I got this book as a Christmas present and he (along with his cousins) read it, giggling constantly. Amazing what kids can pick up and remember, and it could be a life saving tip in the future. The section on poop colors and consistencies is quite informative, and could come in handy.

GREAT VALUE ... funny, factual and just a good, quick read that makes you keep reading and not put it down. The illustrations and wording are well thought out, clever and attention grabbing. I learned so much about things I either took for granted or were wrongly informed. This book would be a great gift. Either as a gag or as a legitimate present for just about anyone. The world would be a better place if people read books of this style (not necessarily the subject matter) periodically. The book's pages should be numbered next time.
