- What is a fart?
- Do all creatures fart?
- Why do farts smell?
- Why do we find them so embarrassing... and so darned funny?!
Broadcaster and obsessive fartologist Stefan Gates tackles these pressing issues in Fartology, the first ever book to take a comprehensive, scientific look at the body's extraordinary methane-making abilities.
Stefan looks at the journey from food to fart; the weird science behind intestinal gas/ the sounds, smells and all things in between. With party recipes, musings on the greatest farmers in history, farts in literature, and fart euphemisms, Fartology offers mind-blowing, trouser-exploding fun for all the family.
