About the Book

First published in English by Scribe 2015.

Book Synopsis


"Everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some)."

Discover the secrets of your digestive system--and how to hone a healthy gut--plus new research on the mind-gut connection.

With quirky charm, science star and medical doctor Giulia Enders explains the gut's magic, answering questions like: What's really up with gluten and lactose intolerance? How does the gut affect obesity? What's the connection between our microbiome and mental health? Why does acid reflux happen? In this revised edition of her beloved bestseller, Enders includes a new section on the brain-gut connection, and dives into groundbreaking discoveries of psychobiotics--microbes with psychological effects that can influence mental health conditions like depression and even stress.

For too long, the gut has been the body's most ignored and least appreciated organ. But it does more than just dirty work; it's at the core of who we are, and this beguiling book will make you finally listen to those butterflies in your stomach: they're trying to tell you something important.

Review Quotes

"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

"With a great sense of humor and ample enthusiasm, Enders explains everything readers did and didn't want to know about their innards ... this book defies boring."
--Publishers Weekly

"This primer is everything you ever wanted to know about the gut (and then some), chattily and accessibly written in a uniquely Millennial and matter of fact way. An unexpected page turner. ...Her excitement about the subject matter is infectious. The fun yet informative black and white drawings throughout are her sister's handiwork. Refreshingly devoid of recipes, or any self help-y language."

". . . a truly bottoms-up approach to our digestive health, smoothly moving us through the inner workings of our gastrointestinal tract."
--Anish Sheth, MD, author of What's Your Poo Telling You

"Gut's probe into the human digestive system might be seen as an earnest younger sibling to Gulp, Mary Roach's 2013 investigation into the same subject. The comparison isn't meant as a slight; Enders swaps out Roach's knowing wryness with a kind of puplike enthusiasm for the complex mechanisms that convert food into a body's energy and waste without our even thinking about it."
--The National Post
