Publisher's Summary

Finally, answers to all those strange questions you'd like to ask your own doctor but haven't had the guts (or more likely the time) to do so. If you've ever wanted to ask a doctor:
How do people in wheelchairs have sex?
Why do I get a killer headache when I suck down my milkshake too fast?
Can I lose my contact lens inside my head forever?
Why does asparagus make my pee smell?
Why do old people grow hair on their ears?
Is the old adage "beer before liquor, never sicker, liquor before beer...," really true? ...then Why Do Men Have Nipples? is the book for you. Compiled by Billy Goldberg, an emergency medicine physician, and Mark Leyner, best-selling author and well-known satirist, Why Do Men Have Nipples? offers real factual and really funny answers to some of the big questions about the oddities of our bodies.

This is the first review I have written in my 18 months as an audible subscriber, but I am writing this one to save others from picking this book. I was disappointed in:

- The sophomoric tone of the writing

- The immense amount of wasted text describing their senseless Instant Messaging conversations

- The few and far between insights into medical questions.

The only really clever aspect of this book is the title and this is probaby one of the reasons why this book is on so many best seller lists.

Gad zukes! Not only doesn't the book answer many of the questions it posits, but also its many useless digressions are often in extremely poor taste. Thank you very much, but I don't care to hear a stroke-by-stroke description of one of the author's masturbatory experiences. The worst part: The authors think they are funny -- hilarious, in fact -- but more of the humor is embarrassing on the cringe-producing level. Trust the reviews here. I had to launder my iPod after I sullied it with this dreck.
