This is a fun book full of disgusting trivia. I found myself reading a good portion of the book aloud to my husband, and saying, "Gross! Did you know that....?". The book is very easy to read and is mostly just quick facts about various things. I liked this book so much that I bought the other two by the author.

I have not read this entire book yet, but have thumbed through it all. I am a high school science teacher and find this book fascinating and full of interesting facts. There are some gross parts but nothing offensive in my opinion. I would have given it a 5 out of 5 but it doesn't actually have the "why you shouldn't eat your boogers.." part. I think if that is going to be in the title to draw your attention, it should be in book too. I have flipped through every page twice to try and find it but I just don't see it. If you find talking about poo and body parts gross, don't buy this book. However, if you find learning about the everyday things our body needs to do to stay alive, then this book is an interesting and fun read. My students will get a kick out it.

I bought this book as a gag gift and have kept it for myself. I am a registered nurse and it turns out that some of the information in this book is useful though not necessarily medically pertinent. Makes for a fun read and a good laugh.

I got this book for my 17-year-old for Christmas. Full of all sorts of "interesting" stories asking the "whys" of the world, such as the book's cover title! Doesn't everyone want to know that? We've had a blast perusing this book.

Very informative book. My grandkids (teens) love it. I enjoyed it too, learned some things I didn't know.
Very strange, because I didn't think I could learn anything else. I thought I already knew it all.

I read a lot of these books of esoteric knowledge. This one is top notch.. The information is presented in a question and answer format. There is enough detail to fully explain the topic, but the entries are short enough to keep the book moving. The author is genuinely amusing. Many of authors of this type of book try way too hard to be funny, and their books end up sounding forced and snarky. That's not the case here.

Topics I found especially interesting or amusing included, why we have "red eye" in photos; why your ethnicity is reflected in your earwax; why albino eyes look pink; how Viagra works; what kind of parasites can live in various parts of the human body; why smokers have a 50% higher chance of losing their teeth; what did women use before tampons were invented; and much more.

I promise you will not be bored reading this book.
