A unique journalistic exploration of the fascinating and funny science of poop.
Poop is disgusting, but it’s also packed with potential. This uniquely crafted narrative nonfiction invites readers to follow the author into science labs, forests, zoos, landfills, and homes as she asks: Who uses poo?
One woman spent months videotaping elephants, giraffes, and rhinos pooping in the zoo. Another scientist army-crawled through the mud, dodging elephants and water buffaloes in a quest for precious cheetah poo. And every week, some folks deliver their own poop to medical facilities, where it is swirled, separated, and shipped off to a hospital to be transplanted into another human. There’s even a train full of human poop sludge that’s stuck without a home in Alabama.
This irreverent and engaging book shows that poop isn’t just waste—and that dealing with it responsibly is our duty.
