Typically, I'll read reviews for a book but not put much weight in them, since it really comes down to a matter of taste. I have to agree with other reviewers on this one, though. Some parts were funny. Some parts were very informative and interesting. But the quirky ramblings exchanged by the authors were like inside jokes that went on way too long. There was too much of this exchange that I'm sure they thought was hilarious, but meant nothing to me except crude commentary. Skip over that, and read the actual questions, and it wasn't bad.

Funny at times, but overall a let down.

My friends and I marveled at some of the facts -- who is the unlucky soul who gets to clock the speed of a fart? -- but for the most part, I've read/heard most of the info elsewhere.

Just the title makes you want to read it. If you ever wondered if you really could light your own fart or what eye boogers were made of, this is your book. Two doctors have answered probably hundreds of questions that we all have probably wondered about but never asked.

The writings between the medical knowledge is funny. The medical knowledge is simplistic -- not for a seasoned medical-trivia buff such as myself.

If you are new to the medical stuff, then you will learn some new things that should propel you into more detailed trivia. If you are looking to add to your library of already-acquired knowledge, then skip it. Too elementary.

Big disappointment. Their "back and forth" messages took up a good part of the book, and were boring. Took me less than 30 minutes to just read the questions/answers, although some of them were interesting. Definitely NOT worth the $13 I spent on it.

Not the greatest. Many questions are things you've heard a million times, like "What causes hiccups?". Seems like at least a third of the questions end with "Doctors don't really know..." And interspersed throughout the book are annoying passages of Instant Messages between the two authors.

Do microwaves cause cancer? Is it bad to crack your knuckles? Written by a top physician and a top-notch humorist, this fascinating, silly, and downright educational reference book sets the record straight on the myriad folk remedies, urban legends, and "proven cures" that everybody's heard about.

I didn't know a lot about this book when I swapped it. They do interject some humor inbetween answering medical questions that people ask such as "why do men have nipples". It did not really hold my interest. I found it a littel dull. I kept finding myself saying, Who Cares?.

Delightful compendium of peculiar health questions--and answers, slightly slapstick... Great book to have for bathroom reading, except you should hide it before throwing any parties. You might not be able to get guests out of the bathroom in a timely fashion.

From back cover: Is There a Doctor in the House? Say youre at a party. Youve had a martini or three, and you mingle through the crowd, wondering how long you need to stay before going out for pizza. Suddenly youre introduced to someone new, Dr. Nice Tomeetya. You forget the pizza. Now is the perfect time to bring up all those strange questions youd like to ask during an office visit with your own doctor but havent had the guts (or more likely the time) to do so. Youre filled with liquid courage... now is your chance! If youve ever wanted to ask a doctor...
How do people in wheelchairs have sex?
Why do I get a killer headache when I suck down my milkshake too fast?
Can I lose my contact lens inside my head forever?

This is a good one to fill up that litle space on the back of the toilet. It's a book which answers many of the questions we ask every day, such as "Can I drink my own urine?" Okay, maybe I don't ask that one every day, but I was curious enough to read the answer.
It's a super quick read, informative, at times funny, but do yourself a favor and pass on the sophmoric rantings of the co-authors. They were kind enough to print those passages in a different font, so it's easy for you to skip.
Oh, and just for the record, yes, you can drink your own urine, but it doesn't taste very good. Shocker.

Interesting facts, but the side commentary by the two authors was just infantile garbage IMO. But I guess everyone has their own style of expressing themselves. I just skipped over those parts and the actual Q&A parts of the book had some Answers to some pretty common misconceptions and weird thoughts that you might think about but never knew where to find the answers. Many are covered in this book. Quick read too!

Well, at least it was fast to read. I was excited about this book, but found it...childish? The authors imply that their book will be given the spot of honor next to the toilet, and must have written the book with this in mind. They include some IMs between them about who knows what.

Funny book with weird questions about "health" such as "Is cracking your knuckles bad for you?" and "Can you really ignite a fart?". The guys who wrote the book (a professional writer and an ER doctor) make the book even more entertaining when they put in their "two cents" on the issues.

However, if you are easily offended by fart jokes and penis references, don't read this book. I have the sense of humor of a 10-year-old boy though, so I (and my 30-something-year-old husband) found it hilarious.

This is the kind of book that you can read a page or two at a time, and then return to it much later without difficulty. Interesting at times, but not riveting, by any means. The "conversations" between the authors were a total waste of time and paper. Do yourself a favor and don't bother reading them; they're worse than meaningless.

"Why Do Men Have Nipples?" doesn't always play fair. Does warm milk really help you to sleep? According to the book, there hasn't been much research done about this. Does bathing in tomato juice remove the smell of a skunk? Not necessarily; tomato juice may just smell more. This book's popularity has more to do with its bathroom jokes, advice about sex ("What is a hickey?") and attention to little-discussed bodily attributes, like ear hair. (--excerpted from "The New York Times Book Review", which loathed this book.)
