"Each page of the book is devoted to one animal and one question: 'Does it fart?'.... But the book isn't just bathroom humor. Written by a pair of wildlife biologists, Does It Fart? cleanly explains the science of digestion and fascinating aspects of animal behavior. (Did you know manatees hold on to their farts to remain buoyant in the water?) In all, the book helps you appreciate the diverse ways wildlife has evolved to deal with passing gas."--Vox, "Gift Guide for Science Lovers"

The book now occupies a place of honor in my house, next to the toilet, where it is always on call to satisfy the curiosity of my lucky guests when they need a bit of bathroom reading."--Katie L. Burke, American Scientist
