Editorial Reviews

Review

“Enders’s wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched only by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject.”
The New York Times

“With a great sense of humor and ample enthusiasm, Enders explains everything readers did and didn’t want to know about their innards ... this book defies boring.”
Publishers Weekly

“This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner. ...Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister’s handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language.” 
SELF

“. . . a truly bottoms-up approach to our digestive health, smoothly moving us through the inner workings of our gastrointestinal tract.”
Anish Sheth, MD, author of What’s Your Poo Telling You

“Gut's probe into the human digestive system might be seen as an earnest younger sibling to Gulp, Mary Roach’s 2013 investigation into the same subject. The comparison isn’t meant as a slight; Enders swaps out Roach’s knowing wryness with a kind of puplike enthusiasm for the complex mechanisms that convert food into a body’s energy and waste without our even thinking about it.”
The National Post
