Format: Paperback
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!

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.

Purchased for my husband for Fathers' Day, after he told my 3 year old to stop laughing about poop as poop isn't funny. He is wrong.
I've only flicked through the book, before I gifted it. It looks to be very interesting. Facts told in a funny, easy to read way. Good gift.

As a tradition my sisters and I often get "poo themed" gifts for each other for Christmas. This was one of the best ones I've gotten. We have already exhausted all the "What's Your Poo Telling You" items, and this one is even better than those. The colored "stool comparison chart" was a big laugh maker. Definitely recommend. Very informative as well.

Got this for a comedian friend of mine - she thinks it is hilarious. I personally am not so sure but everyone seems to love it. Nice gag gift or for someone you know who likes to talk about bathroom stuff (see - I can't even say it).

This book was gotten for my 32 year old son who frequently talks about poop. He likes it and he even asked if I had read or known about facts in the book shortly after I gave it to him. It will make some interesting conversations even more interesting.

This is a great collection of facts, stories, and humorous tidbits about everyone's favorite topic. I purchased this for my wife as kind of a gag gift for Christmas, but we both ended up reading through it, and it's earned a permanent spot on our coffee table. I'd highly recommend
