Dr. Squeaks holds a dual British-American passport, which allows him access to parts of the world often closed to holders of one or the other. In this chronicle, which is in no particular order, you'll find:
The secret to global warming
The real reason Napoleon lost his empire
Did H.P. Lovecraft really write just fiction?
Can a fart kill?
You'll hear about the above and many other encounters I have had with farts all over the world.
Finally, he closes his chronicles with an account of a possible encounter with one of the urban legends spewed in the wake of the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl.
Reordering the farting habits of humanity is a full-time chore, and he has traveled the globe studying and recording where the fart occurs.
Many of the occasions are humorous, some serious, and a few are actually terrifying. You'll meet 40 farts of the world that he has recorded specifics on for your amusement, education, and enlightenment.

I laughed throughout.
This isn't a complex story, but the little bit of character development it has, and the way the character is brought to life through skilled narration, made me wish it was. As is, this book would be more appropriate as a bathroom book than an audio book; however, I could see some applications of the audio book that could be a hit. For example, as a soundtrack played in the restrooms of a hip establishment...
The little bit of character development made Dr. Squeaks seem like the real subject I wanted to know more about. Sure, the subject matter was funny, but I think it would have benefited from more story-telling around the experiences and unique character of Dr. Squeaks.
The narrator's robust voice and clever accent was so true to Dr. Squeaks' eccentric character and brilliant mind that it seemed no one but Dr. Squeaks himself could be doing the narrating.
I hope this author and narrator will continue to tell stories of Dr. Squeaks!
