Reviews

`A publishing sensation that ... sets out to free toilet talk from its taboo'

* The Times *

`Both funny and informative, a brilliant examination of one of our most complex - and underappreciated - organs.'

* The Observer *

`Enders' gut manifesto calls on its readers to celebrate their lower bodies' achievements, rather than apologise for them.'

* Guardian *

`Giulia Enders has a warm and simple prose style and her sister's illustrations are delightful.'

-- William Cook * Spectator *

`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 *

`[Enders is] a publishing sensation ... There is something compelling and refreshing about her curiosity and popular approach.`

-- Simon Usbourne * Independent *

`A primer on poo ... Enders offers nuggets of wisdom on everything from the ideal position in which to evacuate your bowels to the science of faeces identification ... There are some fascinating insights here ... Food for thought.'

* Independent on Sunday *

`[Gut] had me laughing aloud.'

-- Debora MacKenzie * New Scientist *

`The revelation that each of us depends on our individual living world, with far more inhabitants than there are people on earth, is surely sensational.'

-- Clive Cookson * Financial Times *

`[Enders] is utterly, charmingly obsessed with the gut, gut bacteria and poo. She writes and talks about her subject matter with such childlike enthusiasm it's infectious ... The perfect toilet book.'

-- Annalisa Barbieri * Guardian *

`Enders, a German research microbiologist, obviously adores her subject matter ... [her] project is to show how those essential functions of the human body that some people may consider unseemly or unspeakable are in fact wondrous and worthy of exultation.'

-- Karen Hitchcock * Weekend Australian *

`The world's most surprising page-turner.'

-- Anna Murphy * The Times *

`Gut has more to offer than potty-language and a sense of humor ... It's hard not to be awed by Enders' vast knowledge of anatomy and microbiology and share her fascination with the 100 trillion tiny creatures in our tummies.'

* Beauty and Wellbeing *

`An amazing romp down our alimentary canal.'

* New Scientist `Best Books of 2015' *

`A quirky tour of the gastro-intestinal tract.'

* Sunday Herald *

`Gut caused a floodlight to turn on my head ... From this realisation, I developed my interest in fermented foods and drinks.'

-- Jo Webster * Wondergut *

`Tthe title covers the entire digestive tract-from the mouth and tonsils to the esophagus to the small and large intestine, humorously lauding the elegance of the bowels. Along the way, the author covers myriad topics: the proper way to sit on a toilet, vomiting, constipation, feces facts, and the influence the gut has on the brain ... a conversational approach to learning about the digestive system.'

-- Pauline Theriault * Library Journal *

`This book was a revelation; I couldn't stop reading.'

-- Danny Katz * The Saturday Age *
