Precious Bodily Fluids.

You really have to wonder what went on in the mind of the person who designed the cover for The RE/Search Guide To Bodily Fluids by Paul Spinard. Obviously this was not an easy subject to sum up with a single picture, but why they chose to illustrate it with what appears to be a sweaty large intestine is beyond me. The publisher’s description is equally enticing:

This guide sparks a radical rethinking of our relationshiup with our bodies and Nature, humourously (and seriously) spanning the gamut of everything you ever wanted to know about bodily functions and excreta.

The website also includes an excerpt on vomit. This book promises to tell you more than you ever wanted to know about your precious bodily fluids, but, if you want to read more, there are those children’s classics Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi and The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts by Shinta Cho. While not exactly covering the same topic, they are books in a similar…vein.
