Everybody Poops 10 Million Pounds

By Deuce Flanagan

A classic bathroom reader for adults that dives into the fascinating, fetid world of poop below the streets of Gotham and throughout the history of New York City.


New York City has 8.5 million people living in just 305 square miles. The average New Yorker produces just over a pound of poop every single day. That means on any given day New York City flushes down the weight of 700 full grown elephants in fecal matter. So where does all that poop go? Everybody Poops 10 Million Pounds serves up the answer to that curious question as well as many others.


More than any technological feat, the sewer system made possible the birth of the modern city. Of course, it wasn’t so easy getting there. Everybody Poops 10 Million Pounds takes readers on a filthy ride through the fetid streets of old London, where street-dumped chamber pots led to the scourge of cholera. Readers will explore the pig latrines (yup, pig latrines) of Beijing and witness one of the greatest poop-driven engineering feats of all time—the reversal of the Chicago River.


Packed with full color illustrations, it’s perfect reading for those leisurely minutes in the john. Readers can sit back on their porcelain thrones and enjoy the amazing story of how New York City turned its citizens’ poop into agricultural gold.
