A brilliant miscellany of all things scatalogical

"You Don't Know Sh*t glides from the sublime heights of human ingenuity to the lowest of the lower depths. It's the ultimate human journey."—Frederick Kaufman, author of Wasteland

It's part of all of our lives. But how much do you really know about poop, scat, sh*t, excrement? From the historical to the scientific, the cultural to the gross, You Don't Know Sh*t packs a load of solid information into one tidy volume:

--how great civilizations have pooped through the ages

--why some poop floats and other poop sinks

--the final word on whether people have individual brands of bathroom smells

--what your sh*t (and sh*tting style) says about you

--a complete glossary of terms and euphemisms for man's most fundamental function

--fun facts about everything from the first flush, the famous Thomas Crapper, and the differences in bathroom basics around the world

--a cloud's worth of information about farts, too!
