With universal appeal (everyone poos, after all), this witty,
illustrated description of over two dozen dookies (each with a medical
explanation written by a doctor) details what one can learn about health
and well-being by studying what's in the bowl. A floater? It's probably
due to a buildup of gas. Now think back on last night's dinner, a
burrito perhaps?
All the greatest hits are here: The Log Jam,
The Glass Shard, The Deja Poo, The Hanging Chad ... the list goes on.
Sidebars, trivia, over 60 euphemisms for number two, and unusual case
histories all make this the ultimate bathroom reader. Who knew you could
learn so much from your poo?

I thought I would learn something new mixed in with a little bit of humor. The jokes get a little old after a while and begin to sound like a teenage boy wrote this. I guess if I wanted a real medical study, I shouldn't choose a book with a drawing of a toilet on the cover and titled "What's Your Poo Telling You?"

hmmm.
you need a book to tell you that you should not have consumed the mystery meat at the chinese restaurant? that eating 2 dozen "HELLFIRE hot wings" chased with 2 dozen beers is rough on digestion? that you need to mix in a little fiber now and again? that those little yellow pieces are kernels of corn?

an interesting world in which we live, yes?

Everyone should have a copy of this in their bathroom. It is small enough to fit on your toilet tank, and it provides vital information about your excrement in a concise and entertaining manner. While the writing can be juvenile at times, the medical insight this book provides is indispensable.

Incidentally, if you're in someone's bathroom and they have this book on their toilet tank, don't pick it up.

Oddly enough, this is one of the very few books that I have not read, at least part of, in the bathroom. It was a really quick read, so that’s why.

I was under the impression that it had actual pictures of poop. Well, I was both relieved and a little disappointed that that was not the case. Also, rather than being mostly medical, this book was mostly silly with medical facts thrown in.

My favorite thing was the name for the different kinds of poops. We have all had a variety of poops throughout Oddly enough, this is one of the very few books that I have not read, at least part of, in the bathroom. It was a really quick read, so that’s why.

My favorite thing was the name for the different kinds of poops. We have all had a variety of poops throughout our lives, but how many of us name them? The authors give several names for each style. I laughed out loud.

One really interesting fact I would like to share with you: your mouth and your outgoing hole are lined with the same kind of cells. Who knew?! So spicy food that makes your mouth burn can do the same on the way out. And at that point it’s a lot harder to grab a glass of water to cool stuff down.

If you need a really good white elephant gift, I think this would be the best thing ever!

You guys! Mock me if you will, but this is a PERFECT bathroom book! Just the right combination of informative and snarky, and not too long. Bonus entertaining historical facts about poop!

...and I don't even generally enjoy poop jokes all that much. It was just so interesting! (And also funny.)

This book really breaks it down. Pokes around the issues and flushes away any preconceptions you might have about poo. Most of all, it gives you a new arse-nal of terms such as "the corn-backed rattler".

This book was quite interesting and unusual! While it was humorous, it also has a serious side that tells the reader exactly why your stool looks the way it does. It contains numerous interesting stool trivia. Once you've read this book you, too, will be looking at your poo in a whole new way for the rest of your life! My co-workers asked to read it and then ordered copies as Christmas gifts!

A perfect bathroom book, complete with illustrations. It is of vital and infinitely humorous importance that we all know what exactly our fecal matter is attempting to communicate to us. I found myself peering into that porcelain well with renewed interest and vigor upon reading this epic novel.

My only regret is that the book was not scratch n' sniff.

I had this sitting on top of my crapper for a few weeks and have been rummaging through it whenever I needed to conduct some business. It basically goes through some poo characteristics and gives insight into what, in your diet, might be causing it, along with some fun facts about poo that you would probably didn't know.

I didn't give it more than 3 stars because, obviously, how high can you rate a book about poo?

This is a very interesting book with a lot of cool facts and information about different bowel movements. I actually took this book out of the bathroom to finish reading it.

This is a classic bathroom book, in every sense of the term. Surprisingly interesting, funny, and well-written, it never takes itself seriously but manages to provide real and useful health information (the author is an MD). The synonyms for different types of poo are just hilarious. Recommended for a quick bookstore read or for the man in your life who spends a lot of quality time on the can.

"What's Your Poo Telling You?" this whimsically titled book is actually quite useful in achieving an understanding of size, colour, and texture of your feces.

Saw this in the gift section of my local Target. While the title is eye catching & gives a chuckle, the book actually takes a serious look at poop. Not quite what I was expecting but I guess that’s why we read.

Edifying and disgusting at the same time. People! You need to drink water and eat fiber!

Despite suggestions to the contrary, this would not make a good bathroom book -- because it will make you think of others taking a shit (an unpleasant thought).

This was a gag xmas gift from my sister. It tells you a lot about our relationship. But, it also says that I spend way too much time discussing and analyzing my poo. Of course I actually read it. It was informative and definitely geared to an audience of dudes. I learned a lot about poo meanings and fun facts. More importantly, I learned to curb my sharing of toilet exploits.

Think you know your, um, stuff? Think again!

You have to give this one a try! It's hilarious! It's entertaining! It's very enlightening!

If you truly want to learn more about this subject, this is the fun way to do just that!

Kudos to Josh Richman, Anish Sheth, M.D., and Peter Arkle on a job well done!

What's your poo tell you is a very well written and humorous approach to a not often spoken about topic. This book has excellent information on medical reasons for each poo who know you might learn something.

For an all-around useful review of the medicine of poo, I definitely would recommend this book.

Entertaining and informative - I recommend it! It's great that they take a topic so taboo to talk about and address it head on with humor and factual information. Only thing is, I don't think it ever really says what a normal poop looks like or should be. It's important for us to talk to kids about this and remind them that when we eat more veggies and drink more water, while eating less grains, dairy and sugar, our pooping becomes more regular = healthier bodies.

I went into this bathroom stall at work the other day & saw that someone had (thoughtfully?) left this interesting reference book for anyone’s reading pleasure.

Of course I had to open it. There are illustrations & funny names for various types of bowel movements. The health part actually seems helpful. The rest is, well, toilet-esque humor. I guess they tried to make it funny to get people to read it? Not sure if the illustrations help or more detract from the health info.

This book had me cracking up! A short, easy read, and more comedy and less useful health information than I was expecting. But hey, it's a 90-page little toilet reader (literally), so you can't expect to come out of it with a degree in gastroenterology. Humor is definitely of the scatological variety, but with a healthy dose of witty dialogue and alliteration for those who need a little more than just poop jokes to enjoy something. The synonyms to the names of poo alone are worth with hour This book had me cracking up! A short, easy read, and more comedy and less useful health information than I was expecting.

This is the kind of book you read in bits and pieces, not straight all the way through, and I finally finished it. I saw this book with it's funny title and subject in the Hallmark store and I couldn't get it out of my mind. I've been reading lots of books about nutrition, bloating, etc. and I thought it could be valuable to understand more about the bodily function in question. There is some valuable medical information in this book, and it is written in a short, easy to understand style, but This is the kind of book you read in bits and pieces, not straight all the way through, and I finally finished it.

I have not seen this information elsewhere and I did find it useful. ...more

I received this book at a white elephant gift party. It was in my hand on the way to trash when I decided to read a page at random. I ended up reading the whole book.

This could have gone bad in so many ways but manages not too. Surprisingly intelligent, informative and funny without - oh, how many bad puns could I use here?

The authors are a Stanford MBA and a gastroenterologist. The topic, while not the most socially acceptable for conversation, is one in which we all deal with on a daily basis.

A much better read than Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal. I'm not sure how you could better class up this subject without being textbook boring. Well done. ...more
