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.
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!
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.

Only provides detailed information on 10 common breeds
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 ;)
