Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
This book contains the answers to the kinds of questions a stoned person or a child might have (or even some normally curious adult people). Questions about the human body, and the how and why of a lot of disgusting, puzzling, and interesting things. The sorts of things that often occur to us in passing, but somehow we never get around to that Google search we've been meaning to do on the subject.

To have it all laid out there on the page, no effort required, means I'm finally going to get the answers to the things my kid, and stoned (and normally curious adult) self always wondered about. Things like "What does human flesh taste like?". No, the answer is not chicken. Other things like "Why is poo brown?" If questions like that seem like the kind of thing you've been curious to know, then this is the book for you.
