‘[Enders] is utterly, charmingly obsessed with the gut, gut bacteria and poo. She writes and talks about her subject matter with such childlike enthusiasm it's infectious … The perfect toilet book.’

‘[Gut] had me laughing aloud.’

*New Scientist*

‘This book was a revelation; I couldn’t stop reading.’
*The Saturday Age*

‘A publishing sensation that … sets out to free toilet talk from its taboo’
*The Times*

‘Both funny and informative, a brilliant examination of one of our most complex — and underappreciated — organs.’
*The Observer*

‘Enders’ gut manifesto calls on its readers to celebrate their lower bodies’ achievements, rather than apologise for them.’

‘Giulia Enders has a warm and simple prose style and her sister’s illustrations are delightful.’

‘Giulia Enders takes a no-nonsense approach to bodily functions … [Gut] reads like a breeze … you can totally see why it's been massive.'

‘[Enders is] a publishing sensation … There is something compelling and refreshing about her curiosity and popular approach.‘

‘A primer on poo … Enders offers nuggets of wisdom on everything from the ideal position in which to evacuate your bowels to the science of fæces identification … There are some fascinating insights here … Food for thought.’
*Independent on Sunday*

‘This book is brilliant: it’s so interesting about this massive, underrated organ we have. But it also asks fantastic questions about how the gut is linked to all sorts of things – not just allergies and sensitivities, but possible mental health. The thought that what we eat might affect our brains feels so astoundingly simple. And it’s a really fun read too.’
*The Observer*

‘The revelation that each of us depends on our individual living world, with far more inhabitants than there are people on earth, is surely sensational.’
*Financial Times*

‘The world’s most surprising page-turner.’
*The Times*

‘Enders, a German research microbiologist, obviously adores her subject matter … [her] project is to show how those essential functions of the human body that some people may consider unseemly or unspeakable are in fact wondrous and worthy of exultation.’
*Weekend Australian*

‘The best book I’ve read in the past year is Gut by Giulia Enders. It explains all one needs to know about the digestive cycle in order to lead a healthier and happier life.’
*Financial Times*

‘Gut has more to offer than potty-language and a sense of humor … It’s hard not to be awed by Enders’ vast knowledge of anatomy and microbiology and share her fascination with the 100 trillion tiny creatures in our tummies.’
*Beauty and Wellbeing*

‘An amazing romp down our alimentary canal.’
*New Scientist ‘Best Books of 2015’*

‘A quirky tour of the gastro-intestinal tract.’
*Sunday Herald*

‘Gut caused a floodlight to turn on my head … From this realisation, I developed my interest in fermented foods and drinks.’

‘The title covers the entire digestive tract-from the mouth and tonsils to the esophagus to the small and large intestine, humorously lauding the elegance of the bowels. Along the way, the author covers myriad topics: the proper way to sit on a toilet, vomiting, constipation, feces facts, and the influence the gut has on the brain … a conversational approach to learning about the digestive system.’
*Library Journal*

‘Enders’s wonder at the strange ways of the gut is matched only by her incredulity at the limited public knowledge on the subject.’
*The New York Times*

‘With a great sense of humour and ample enthusiasm, Enders explains everything readers did and didn’t want to know about their innards … this book defies boring.’
*Publishers Weekly*

‘This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner … Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister’s handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language.’
*Self Magazine*

[A] truly bottoms-up approach to our digestive health, smoothly moving us through the inner workings of our gastrointestinal tract.
*Dr Anish Sheth, author of What’s Your Poo Telling You*

‘Gut's probe into the human digestive system might be seen as an earnest younger sibling to Gulp, Mary Roach’s 2013 investigation into the same subject. The comparison isn’t meant as a slight; Enders swaps out Roach’s knowing wryness with a kind of puplike enthusiasm for the complex mechanisms that convert food into a body’s energy and waste without our even thinking about it.’
*The National Post*

‘Giulia Enders takes a deep dive into the fascinating connection between the gut and brain … a must read.’
*Press Association*
