It's basically a lot of stories about a man following through due to illness or diet in various parts of the world. And then using a number of different "things to hand" to try to clean himself up and then dispose of his underwear.
You would think after the first few misshaps that he would have started carrying toilet roll around with him.
So it's not really a story - more like something that should be a weekly magazine column thrown together into a book. The writing style showed promise - but it is like those books "100 uses for a dead cat" that people buy each other at Christmas and that get stuck in a charity bag in the new year.
Ok read. But won't be reading it again.
It would have been much easier to read if he had given more explanation of where he was, why he was there and how the visit fitted in with other stories.It isn't a book that starts at the beginning and follows chronologically -it jumps about back and forth from country to country so that it is not possible to keep up.
He is so intent on relating his bowel problems that there is no real story. It had the potential to combine a good travel book with amusing incidents based on his toilet problems but he failed. The already short book is only 93% long -the rest is taken with acknowledgements (Bec Foulis failed him somewhat in proof-reading as there are a fair number of errors)and then odd quotations.
This is a book that started out with promise but failed to deliver, even though some of the incidents were funny and others cringe-making. And I'm sure we all secretly (or not, in the case of many males) admire his fart/shart stories!! Also his description of the perfect poo was accurate!!
I hope this author gets some better advise on writing as he has promise, but this book did not quite succeed.

Don't waste time or money on this book. It would seem to be written by a schoolboy. If you enjoy that type of humour, you will enjoy it. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2013 by Davyboy
As an ex-nurse I reckon I can appreciate toilet humour as well as the next person, perhaps better than some. Read morePublished on 8 May 2013 by The G-Man
I loved this book and found it highly amusing. At various points in the book this collection of stories is so funny/cringe worthy that you just have to laugh out loud. Read morePublished on 30 April 2013 by Tottington52
