  • Can I lose my contact lens inside my head forever?
  • Why does asparagus make my pee smell?
  • Why do old people grow hair on their ears?
  • Is the old adage "beer before liquor, never sicker, liquor before beer...," really true?

    ...then Why Do Men Have Nipples? is the book for you.

    Compiled by Billy Goldberg, an emergency medicine physician, and Mark Leyner, best-selling author and well-known satirist, Why Do Men Have Nipples? offers real factual and really funny answers to some of the big questions about the oddities of our bodies.

      "Can't recommend"

      This is the first review I have written in my 18 months as an audible subscriber, but I am writing this one to save others from picking this book. I was disappointed in:

      - The sophomoric tone of the writing

      - The immense amount of wasted text describing their senseless Instant Messaging conversations

      - The few and far between insights into medical questions.

      The only really clever aspect of this book is the title and this is probaby one of the reasons why this book is on so many best seller lists.

      "Ick!"

      Gad zukes! Not only doesn't the book answer many of the questions it posits, but also its many useless digressions are often in extremely poor taste. Thank you very much, but I don't care to hear a stroke-by-stroke description of one of the author's masturbatory experiences. The worst part: The authors think they are funny -- hilarious, in fact -- but more of the humor is embarrassing on the cringe-producing level. Trust the reviews here. I had to launder my iPod after I sullied it with this dreck.

      "Don't waste your money"

      The most insightful thing these two idiots have to say is... well.. I guess there is nothing insightful. I was looking forward to a funny book with a bit of education thrown in there. Maybe some good little tidbits for conversation at a party. When they get to the medical questions, basically the answer is recited out of a medical journal. Nothing the commom person could ever remember (or want to). Better explanations are found through google.

      Plus it's hard to listen to such pompous jerks talk about how much money they are being paid. For WHAT?? Some crappy book that was reviewed in People Magazine, therefore brought in a bunch of traffic. PLEASE, don't give them a dime. And shame on Time Warner for giving them the free publicity.

      "Don't waste your time"

      Between talking about how much money they will make for their stupid book the pose but don't answer half the questions.

      "What does dreck sound like?"

      Dennis is right on the mark. A very trivial book is padded mercilessly with stuff that the authors thought was funny when they were drunk. It isn't. With the printed version, you could skip rapidly over the worthless filler material and finish the whole thing in fifteen minutes or so, and it would still be useful as kindling for the fireplace. With the audio version, you're stuck for a much longer time, and when you're finished you have nothing but the memory of time wasted.

      "Irritating"

      The authors think they are much funnier than they are - a waste of time.

      "Worse than expected"

      The actual science in the book is fairly interesting, but someone needs to tell the authors they're not funny... at all. Way too little information.

      "Crude Sophomoric Attempt at Humor"

      I totally agree with the other posts.

      This book mainly consists of sophomoric bathroom humor. And I use the term humor very loosely.

      It is crude and non-informative.

      There are very few answers to questions posed and even those answers that are included are inconclusive.

      The Instant Messaging conversations that are included make no sense other than as filler to extend the length of the book.

      I would definitely pass on this book.

      "Self serving but interesting"

      The authors seem to have written this book for their own amusement and it is heavy with information about them. Some of the anecdotes are amusing, but overall disappointing
