Ahhh... Laughing at Farts- seems kiddish and maybe old hat, maybe something to be above... but alas its a form of entertainment everyone carries around. I bought this for my son's 6th birthday and he couldn't even believe it. It was definitely his favorite present. He was flippin out on the name 'Flight of the Buttocks Bees'- one of the farts described and sounded. He really got into it and started naming all issued farts now. I was glad to see he got the humor too- with a dude standing in an elevator smiling and everyone else cringing -loves showing people that image. The little sound device is freaking hilarious! Makes me think of the other types of books that have these... like Disney books where you can hear the fairies wand -but here you can hear a raunchy fart. Accidentally pushed a button in the store when I picked it up (buying it the first time) and got some funny looks from Urban Outfitters hotties across the store. I bought one online for my bro and his kids and they Loved it too (Great Gift). Really amazes kids- just put yourself in their shoes- I would have loved to have this when I was little- or even now as a coffee table book to make people laugh.
Word about the illustrator: Travis of Fudgefactory comics is an underground style illustrator/Artist who's done many a skateboard deck, and work with Burton Snowboards, Volcom, Sheppard Fairy (Obama Poster) and many zines, music albums and gallery shows- good chance to get introduced and/or pick up a bit of his work.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this and "What's Your Poo Telling You?" "Farts: A Spotter's Guide" is strictly for giggles, and boy, do I! There are just a few thick cardboard pages. What really matters here are not the words. It's the buttons! Ten different fart sound effect buttons - it's like I went to Humor Heaven!

Even my husband, who is far less enthusiastic about fart humor gets a kick out of this book. We keep it within easy reach so we can press a fart at will to break the silence or make a point.

I've already gifted a copy of this book, and I'll probably buy more for gifts for my family and friends. By golly, if this book doesn't get a grin out of you, you don't have a pulse!

Format: Hardcover
Have you ever stood in an elevator, when suddenly a foul odored roar ripped through the silence? If you wondered about the breed of fart you came in contact with, this book may be for you.

A book like "Farts: A Spotter's Guide" is a rare find to say the least. This hardcover illustrated book includes detailed information on ten common fart breeds. Given two side by side pages, each breed's section contains the common and scientific name, an illustration, field marks, voice, habitat, range, finally a description. To some, this information may be enough, but this book also provides high quality recordings of each breed as well.

After studying this book, you'll impress all your friends with your ability to identify farts on the fly. However, it's not as impressive to refer to them as a number 2 and such. In this example it may be confusing, but for those who have yet to study this book, the numbers wouldn't mean much. Using the scientific name would probably come off as pretentious, it's best to use the common name around your unlearned friends.

If you are looking for a comprehensive book on farts, or are looking for a fun and informative gift for a friend, this book is sure to be enjoyed. The information is accurate, and provides laughter and amusement to an otherwise smelly subject.

PROS:
Hardcover
Includes audio recordings
Provides laughter and amusement

CONS:
Only provides detailed information on 10 common breeds

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Farts: A Spotter's Guide is an absolutely delightful book that will put a smile on your face. (If not, you're an old fart!) You see, it has these little blue buttons numbered from one to ten, and when you depress them, they simulate different kinds of flatulence. I sent it to a friend who was nervous about having surgery and he laughed all the way to the operating room. When he got home, he farted, and his wife said, "What was that?" "Number 6," he replied. Buy lots of copies and send them to your friends.

It seems that they strategically placed #9 as it is one L O N G and especially funny fart that will have everyone in the vicinity wondering who dealt it.

Farts is a funny gift book that celebrates a universal language. Everyone farts, and everyone laughs at farts (even if only to themselves). I suggest wrapping it in thin paper, so that when it is being opened on xmas morning your recipient his a few of the buttons. Ha!

My husband and son have different names for all of their farts. This book is a GAS!!!!! We were laughing so hard pushing all the buttons- it is so appropriate for those men that take pride in their farts!!!!

This is a fun book for those who laugh at bubble humor. The sound module makes it hysterical.
This is a hard cover book 6 5/8 " X 8 ¼", and as hard as a book you would buy for a young child. The pages are hard and thick, too--so it is very durable, with 16 inner pages. 2 pages open to display a scene spread of bubble activity. Around the scene is some verbiage. There are 10 sound buttons on the sound module, which match up with the numbers and scenes. Here's an example.

Scene #3 is called "Blowing Smoke", from the Latin "outburstus smogitupus".
Field Marks: . . .bending boughs and flaring nostrils. . .
Voice: . . .song longer than all other species. . . (song?--Ha!)
Habitat:. . .meadows. . .
Range. . .Southern US. . .
Description:. . .has been known to extinguish matches. . .
Then you push button #3 and LYAO! (laugh your. . .)

Scene #5 is probably my favorite, though "The Flight of the Buttock Bees" or analretentivenus producii, for those who speak Latin. The scene is a bunch of tightly interwoven cubicles, with smoke rising from the center cubicle.

This book is a birthday gift for a primarily left-brained tekki friend. I cannot wait to see his face! (I love to make friends laugh'
