International travel is rewarding and fun, but sometimes it exacts a price. Activities we take for granted--eating, bathing, and going to the toilet--can range from challenging to risky in unfamiliar territory. In How to Shit Around the World, Dr. Jane Wilson-Howarth takes a sympathetic and funny approach to the most basic human activity, interweaving hilarious anecdotes from fellow travelers with sensible tips and techniques. More than just a how-to, this book inspires the traveler to be adventurous in dealing with foreign toilets, and to heed the fascinating cultural lessons to be learned from the simple act of using the bathroom.
