Shallow, childish and occasionally school-boy scatological. Many other much more enjoyable and informative books with better illustrations available.

Repetitive; still it does tell you what you'd want to know.

Interesting factoids abound but the book rambles on sometimes, only to very abruptly return to a previous topic.
