Everyone smells! The sense of smell plays a crucial part in survival, communication, and taste, and is the basis of a multi-billion-dollar industry. But, despite all this, it's the sense we often know least about.

This hilarious and fact-packed book puts that right. Find out everything you could ever want to know about stinks, whiffs, and pongs, from the fruit so pungent it's banned from public transport to the top-secret military program developing the stinkiest stink bomb.
