An entertaining and enlightening exploration of why waste matters, this cultural history explores an often ignored subject matter and makes a compelling argument for a deeper understanding of human and animal waste. Approaching the subject from a variety of perspectives - evolutionary, ecological, and cultural - this examination shows how integral excrement is to biodiversity, agriculture, public health, food production and distribution, and global ecosystems. From primordial ooze, dung beetles, bug frass, cat scats, and flush toilets to global trade, pandemics, and energy, this is the awesome, troubled, uncensored story of feces.

"Funny and informative"
I think I would. There is really a lot of interesting information. It's impossible to remember everything and I suppose I'll have to get back to the book at some point.
I have not, but most likely will.
I don't know if I wanted to, but I did.
Kevin Scollin is a very good narrator. It's not tiring to listen to him even 6 hours straight.
