You Don't Know Sh*t! Until You Read This Book is a uniquely informative, entertaining, colorfully illustrated volume that is full of it! The ‘it' being information, knowledge, eccentricities, and peculiarities of the remains of the digestive process. Although these remains are more politely described as feces or excrement, it is more commonly known as shit. It covers everything you ever wanted to know about this primitive but ubiquitous of subjects. We all generate it, carry it around with us in our bowels, and eliminate it on a regular basis. Whether you disdain it or appreciate it, it is part of the human (and animal) experience. The purpose of this volume is to inform the reader that there is a lot more to know about shit and that the information can be helpful, possibly life-saving, and downright entertaining. Easy to read and colorfully illustrated, the book can be opened at random to unique entries, or read cover to cover. Digestion, genomics, gut-brain-microbiome-diet axis, and poop are just some of the important topics covered that profoundly impact human health and wellness. The trivia in this volume can sustain a long conversation, or cut it short abruptly. After reading this volume, you will have a newfound appreciation that the title accurately reflects the state of knowledge of those who have not yet read the book!

Combining a razor sharp intellect within a compassionate humanist, he is as comfortable with heads of state, celebrities, Nobel laureates, and CEO's as he is with the most menial of laborers and the unemployed.

A naturally gifted communicator, teacher, and student, sharing and expanding knowledge are an overarching passion. With a great sense of humor, he shares the deprecating story that he used to consider himself conceited, but with the development of an extraordinary degree of modesty, he is now absolutely perfect. Continuing as an inquisitive life-long student of everything, volunteer philanthropic and community activities, and world travel are just a few of the avocations he enjoyably pursues.
