Book Overview

From the moment we're born to the moment we die, we produce it. It's as natural as breathing. But many of us can't bear to look at it, touch it or smell it. We dispose of it behind closed doors, flush it down clean white toilets, don't mention it in polite company. It's one of ""civilized"" society's last taboos. Enough It's the world's most underrated resource. We can cook with it, build with it, admire it, wear it. It's unique (no two examples are...

I study poop , or should I say fecies, for a living. This book has accurate pictorials and descriptions of the different kinds of fecies that we excrete from our system. A remarkable book indeed and a great one for children to get aquainted with on rainy, muddy days.

Covers it all.

Everything you ever wanted NOT to know. Actually not quite true because it is rather thin on the medical side of poo (illnesses and hospitals etc) and maybe that's a good thing too. Produced by the folks from `Colors' magazine (The United Colors of Benetton) this nicely designed book is full of one paragraph items, written in a straightforward style and thankfully avoiding any euphemisms. The editors must have wondered how on earth they were going to illustrate it? The neat solution was to get photographer Marirosa Ballo to train his lens on sixty-seven samples of animal droppings, reproduced here as cut-outs on the white page, nicely done too. Needless to say they vary enormously depending on the animals diet and lifestyle. This quirky title is another addition to my (slowly) expanding shelf of bizarre books, it already has `A Handbook on Hanging' by Charles Duff (London 1928) `Frog Raising for Pleasure and Profit' by Albert Broel (New Orleans 1937) and `Car Crashes' by Mell Kilpatrick (Koln 2000) this last book is from the same publisher as 'Cacas'.

I love Cacas!

When I received this book as part of a Christmas gift, I had to wonder what the sender was trying to say to me. It was all in fun though. I didn't take the book very seriously at first, but as I read through the pages (after of course just looking at all of the pictures) I realized there was much about caca that I didn't know. The photography is very detailed and it is well-written and informative.

a poo fan's bible

for the everyday man having a poo is not something to be proud of. thank the holy log that some of us are different, we treat our turds like family, better than family.this is the type of person this excellent book is for. featuring poos from around the world, different types and aromas it is the casual toilet user's bible.Dont bother bringing it to the dinner table though......

Humorous and informative!

This book, more than anything, is a hoot. It consists mostly of large, full-color pictures of various types of poop, each labeled with the species from which it came. There is also accomanying text, given in English, French and German, which is often comical, and often educational. The book gives a history of poop in culture, and a scientific overview of poop - both how it's made and how it's ejected. This book is great for everyone!
