Despite the sily title, this book is filled with fascinating information. I especially enjoyed reading about the crazy and gross things people eat in other parts of the world. Personally, I prefer that my meat is already dead and not moving when I eat it, but in some cultures monkey brains that are still pulsating, and fish you have to chase around on your plate are prized. Other questions of interest included; in which countries are people most likely to wash their hands after using the bathroom, has anyone carried out a head transplant, how long does a head remain conscious after being cut off by a guillotine, and how often were people buried alive prior to modern medicine & how long could you survive in a coffin. I recommend all of the books in this series. They are filled with weirdly fascinating knowledge that you'd never learn in school.

This book has inspired my kid to become a "journalist who specializes in writing about science".

"Francesca Gould is my favorite author. She has inspired me to become a scientific journalist. She makes that job sound fun, and it sound like it would be a fun job, although I'm only 10.
Her books are some of the best books I've read in my life."

Mother's note: WOW, you will have your kid telling you strange facts all the time if you give your kid this book series! How injecting frogs with human pee works as a pregnancy test, etc! Serious wizardry and witches brew stuff! Heh.

This book is wonderful, full of odd facts about things that you may have never thought about. Makes for a great afternoon read, and hey..you may even learn something that you never knew before..such as a cock roach farts every 15 minutes, some fish use farting as a means of communication, who knows, you may even have a worm growing inside you...wow lots of stuff to think about after reading this book.

Very informative book. My grandkids (teens) love it. I enjoyed it too, learned some things I didn't know.
Very strange, because I didn't think I could learn anything else. I thought I already knew it all.

Very interesting

The book was a christmas gift for my son. We all like the trivia. Its a lot of fun to share the book with one another.
Do you want to read about anal hair? Of course not!!!

The only problem is... secretly... you DO! I thought this book was as interesting and funny as it was gross. A better gift for a man, but oh well, my husband has a sense of humor. Remember those old Encyclopedia Brown stories you read when you were a kid? Well, this is the adult version. A perfect book for any fact junkie who likes to be the center of attention at parties.

Really, though... the book is really funny. If for any other reason, buy this book so you can find out what kind of coffee is made with an added sprinkle of poo. Seriously. Yes, I'm serious. Poo. Now you HAVE to buy it.
