Review

'A publishing sensation that... sets out to free toilet talk from its taboo.';-The Times;;'Enders' gut manifesto calls on its readers to celebrate their lower bodies' achievements, rather than apologise for them.';-Guardian;;'[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;;'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;;'Enders's wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched only by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject.';- The New York Times;;'This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner. ... Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister's handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language.';- Self Magazine;;'[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, 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;;'Like farmers, we can foster the right microbial balance by introducing better breeds into the resident stock in our gut world; we can even, it seems, manage our moods and mend our minds ... Each note reinforces her message that feeling miserable can be just as much about how the gut is performing as the state of our neurotransmitters ... Enders is particularly good at explaining why the gut is the body's largest sensory organ and how it works co-operatively with the brain to stabilise our emotional lives.';- Gail Bell, Sydney Morning Herald;;'A hugely informative and also entertaining look at a part of the body that we should stop ignoring.';- Country Living;;'If you only buy one health book this year make it this one. It's educational, funny and a breeze to read. Get to grips with your gut!';- Signes Johansen, author of Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking: Scandilicious;;'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
