"This is one of those books you get for the fun factor, even though this book has a good lesson at it's heart. No one wants to be fat not even Mr. Poo. Brilliant story idea!" - User Review
"This is a silly and fun take on the journey to combat obesity and becoming healthy. The author has a good sense of humour and the artwork is really cute & makes you smile." - Le Bandy, Reviewer
The Real Fat Poo - About The Author in his own words
As a teenager I was extremely overweight. I grew up in a Takeaway Roadhouse in Tasmania, Australia. Constantly I would stuff myself full of deep fried food, ice cream and sugary drinks on a daily basis. At my biggest was 110 Kgs which is massive considering I am only 170cm on a good day. Kids would call me "Fat S%#*" amongst other things, hence the title Fat Poo. When I turned 18 I left home running away to Sydney - 2000 Kilometres from Tasmania.
Combining a harsh diet of starvation with excessive cardio I lost a huge 53kgs in a short period of time. Hooray!..... No Hooray. I didn't know it but I was living a recurring cycle of eating disorders. Throughout my twenties I kept the weight off dangerously - while simultaneously spiralling into a state of depression inspired mood swings. After many lost jobs, failed relationships and destroyed friendships I realised that a new healthy lifestyle was needed to maintain my sanity - let alone those few left around me. I succeeded through educating myself on healthy eating and exercise.
Fifteen years later I returned to Tasmania to tell my story. "Fat Poo" is my satirical inspiring tale of how I went from obesity, lost weight the wrong way, alienated all those around me, and eventually taught myself and implemented the skills on how to lead a healthy fulfilling lifestyle.
Enjoy my journey.

EGGHEAD: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone
Bo Burnham was a precocious teenager living in his parents' attic when he started posting material on YouTube. 100 million people viewed those videos, turning Bo into an online sensation with a huge and dedicated following. Bo taped his first of two Comedy Central specials four days after his 18th birthday, making him the youngest to do so in the channel's history. Now Bo is a rising star in the comedy world, revered for his utterly original and intelligent voice. And, he can SIIIIIIIIING!
In EGGHEAD, Bo brings his brand of brainy, emotional comedy to the page in the form of off-kilter poems, thoughts, and more. Teaming up with his longtime friend, artist, and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo takes on everything from death to farts in this weird book that will make you think, laugh and think, "why did I just laugh?"
So here we go; it's time to back up because YouTube superstars, The Sidemen, are finally here in book form and they're dishing the dirt on each other as well as the YouTube universe.
There's nowhere to hide as KSI, Miniminter, Behzinga, Zerkaa,Vikkstar123, Wroetoshaw and Tobjizzle go in hard on their living habits, their football ability, and their dodgy clobber, while also talking Fifa, Vegas and superheroes. They'll also give you their grand house tour, letting you in on a few secrets, before showing you their hall of fame, as well as revealing some of their greatest shames.
Along the way you'll learn how seven of the world's biggest YouTube stars started off with nothing more than a computer console, a PC and a bad haircut before joining forces to crush the internet. And they'll tell you just how they did it (because they're nice like that) with their ultimate guide to YouTube while also sharing their memories of recording their favourite videos as well as a typical day in the life of The Sidemen.
You'll feel like you're with them every step of the way, smelling the 'sweet' aroma of the boys' favourite dishes in the kitchen, stamping your passport as you follow them on their trips around the world and kicking every ball as the boys gear up for the biggest football match of their lives.
It's going to get personal. It's going to get intense, and JJ is going to have lots of tantrums, so take a moment to prepare yourself, because this is The Sidemen book you've been waiting for!
Demetri's first literary foray features longer-form essays and conceptual pieces (such as Protagonists' Hospital, a melodrama about the clinic doctors who treat only the flesh wounds and minor head scratches of Hollywood action heroes), as well as his trademark charts, doodles, drawings, one-liners, and lists (i.e., the world views of optimists, pessimists and contortionists), Martin's material is varied, but his unique voice and brilliant mind will keep readers in stitches from beginning to end.
POINT YOUR FACE AT THIS
In his first book, This Is a Book, Demetri Martin introduced fans and readers to his unique brand of long-form humor writing. That book spent twelve weeks on the New York Times bestseller list Now Demetri returns with an eclectic volume devoted entirely to his trademark drawings and word play. POINT YOUR FACE AT THIS contains hundreds of hilarious drawings and visual jokes, showcasing Martin's particular penchant for brevity.
With a sensibility all its own, this is a great gift book and an absolute must-have for fans of the brainy, ambidextrous, comedian, palindromist (and author), Demetri Martin.
And now, you can read Daniel Klein's further musings on life and philosophy in Travels with Epicurus and Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change it.
