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.

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!

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

This is pretty funny, and my battery worked. It was meant for my husband as a joke Christmas gift - because he has the most bizarre-sounding farts that never smell bad, and it has become a running joke - but unfortunately he opened it (!) because he didn't know that it was for him. Anyway, he thought it was funny, but he did note that the fart recordings don't vary that much except for one that goes on for a long time.

Also it would be great if it were on the same level as "What Is Your Poo Telling You?" which has very funny descriptions and the medical explanation for them written by a physician, which makes it actually instructive. So compared to that, it wasn't quite there. Also, I think they should contact my husband for their new edition to record more eccentric sounds ;)

the analyses in this book are hilarious. the sounds are irreverant. of course it is only funny for so long, but it IS good to just pick the book up once in awhile to laugh again. especially good bathroom reading.

Funny, and perfect gift that I needed for the recipient. I didn't realize that it's a cardboard book like the baby books with the thick cardboard pages, but that doesn't really matter to me, since it's a gag gift anyway. I don't see anywhere to change the batteries, so I don't know how long it will last but I like that I don't have to buy batteries before giving the gift this Christmas!

Hilarious! My dad loves all things Fart humor and this did not disappoint. He was crying he laughed so hard. The only negative was that the book was delivered with dead batteries. The replacement batteries (3 button type) cost about $5 at the local store. Needless to say, this was frustrating.
