"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

A cheeky up-close and personal guide to the secrets and science of our digestive system

For too long, the gut has been the body's most ignored and least appreciated organ, but it turns out that it's responsible for more than just dirty work: our gut is at the core of who we are. Gut, an international bestseller, gives the alimentary canal its long-overdue moment in the spotlight.
