Publisher's Summary

The key to living a happier, healthier life is inside us. Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain or our heart, yet we know very little about how it works.
In Gut, Giulia Enders shows that rather than the utilitarian and - let's be honest - somewhat embarrassing body part we imagine it to be, it is one of the most complex, important, and even miraculous parts of our anatomy. And scientists are only just discovering quite how much it has to offer; new research shows that gut bacteria can play a role in everything from obesity and allergies to Alzheimer's.
Beginning with the personal experience of illness that inspired her research and going on to explain everything from the basics of nutrient absorption to the latest science linking bowel bacteria with depression, Enders has written an entertaining, informative health handbook.
Gut definitely shows that we can all benefit from getting to know the wondrous world of our inner workings. In this charming book, young scientist Giulia Enders takes us on a fascinating tour of our insides. Her message is simple: if we treat our gut well, it will treat us well in return. But how do we do that? And why do we need to? Find out in this surprising and surprisingly funny exploration of the least understood of our organs.
Giulia Enders is a two-time scholarship winner of the Heraeus Foundation and is doing research for her medical doctorate at the Institute for Microbiology in Frankfurt. In 2012 her presentation of Gut won her first prize at the Science Slam in Berlin and went viral on YouTube.

Sweet and educational

I feel like this book has given a lot. It presents its information in a way that makes it easy to absorb. And the performance almost had me believe the author of the book read it :P

Anyways, I haven't taken any courses in medicine, but my roomy who is studying to become a doctor said she got a far few things out of the book as well :)

Brilliant and so interesting!

I strongly recommend this book to everyone, even people who are only remotely interested in healthy lifestyle. This brilliant little book offers a glimpse into the hidden world inside us, with up to date scientific knowledge, but told in a simple and entertaining way! Giulia Enders I could not thank you enough for writing this book! I learned a lot! My personal favourite bacteria - L. Bacillus bulgaricus was also mentioned as one of the superstars.
The essence is that alongside better understanding of the processes in your digestive system, this book also gives you practical advice on easy to implement small changes, but with huge benefits for your health.

So easy to understand a very complicated subjects

Well done to Giulia!! She is so talented doctor who can explain complicated yet important subjects (and very new area of research) to a lay person like me who is facing difficulties maintaining good health (despite trying so many different ways) to understand how my gut works in such a fun and engaging language. Plus, how much I have to appreciate microbiome, eco-system in my body. There is so much valuable information that usually aren't discussed in the public education which can indicate the state of our health like bad breath, poops, winds...ect. Thanks to her now I'm even more intrigued about the subject and want to learn more. Thank you Giulia!!
