Review

'A publishing sensation that … sets out to free toilet talk from its taboo' --The 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

'[Gut] had me laughing aloud.' --Debora MacKenzie, New Scientist

Review

‘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 fæces 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)
