“Anyone yearning to pursue a healthier lifestyle should read this book first! Jacobs spent two years on a quest to improve his health, one body part at a time. Besides being very funny - who knew there was a surgical procedure to change the timbre of your farts? - this book is a fount of useful information as Jacobs tries out all of the crazy medical advice so you don't have to. PS: Laughing at this book will make you healthier. (See Chapter 10.)”
