Gut: the inside story of our body's most under-rated organ [9781911344773]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

'The world's most surprising page-turner. A publishing sensation that ... sets out to free toilet talk from its taboo.' - The Times

Our gut is as important as our brain or heart, yet we know very little about how it works, and many of us are too embarrassed to ask questions.

In Gut, Giulia Enders breaks this taboo, revealing the latest science on how much our digestive system has to offer.

From our miraculous gut bacteria - which can play a part in obesity, allergies, depression, and even Alzheimer's - to the best position to poo, this entertaining and informative health handbook shows that we can all benefit from getting to know the wondrous world of our inner workings.

'Enders' gut manifesto calls on its readers to celebrate their lower bodies' achievements, rather than apologise for them' - Philip Oltermann, The Guardian

'Giulia Enders takes a no-nonsense approach to bodily functions ... [Gut] reads like a breeze ... you can totally see why it's been massive.' - Grazia

'The revelation that each of us depends on our individual living world, with far more inhabitants that there are people on earth, is surely sensational.' - Clive Cookson, Financial Times

'A primer on poo ... There are some fascinating insights here ... Food for thought.' - The Independent on Sunday

'Both funny and informative.' - The Observer

'Enders has a warm and simple prose style, and her sister's illustrations are delightful.' - William Cook, Spectator

'Enders' wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject.' - Jesse Coburn, The New York Times
