The Scoop on Poop!
Flush with Knowledge, Volume One
Joseph Weiss, MD
The Scoop on Poop! Flush with Knowledge is a uniquely informative, tastefully entertaining, and well-illustrated volume that is a comprehensive and knowledgeable overview of all topics related to the engrossing subject of the remains of the digestive process. Whether you call it poop, feces, excrement, manure, dung, or by one of the more than one hundred euphemisms, the proper Old English term is 'shyte' or 'shite'. Now using proper Modern English, shit happens, and it happens a lot! Tens of billions of pounds and kilograms are deposited every day by a wild diversity of animal and microbial life. Humans alone contribute over three billion pounds a day, and only a small percent of that is treated by a sewage system. Whether you disdain or appreciate it, it is part of the human and animal experience. The purpose of this volume is to share rarely discussed, yet important, knowledge about poop. The information ranges from the potentially life-saving to the sidesplitting eccentricities and peculiarities of human behavior. Easy to read and colorfully illustrated, the book can be opened at random to unique entries, or read cover to cover. Digestion, genomics, gut-brain-microbiome-diet axis, and poop are just some of the important topics covered that profoundly impact human health and wellness. The wealth of information and trivia in this volume can sustain a long social conversation, or cut it short abruptly! This book is also published under its alternative title "You Don't Know Sh*t! Until You Read This Book"
"In Dr. Joseph Weiss' book he provides an informative and entertaining approach to sharing insights about our digestive system and wellbeing." Deepak Chopra, MD
