Dr Austin Chiang is a world-renowned expert in gut health and TikTok star who believes everyone has a right to know and understand their body. He translates medical jargon into simple, clear prose, answering frequently asked patient queries and investigating what we fear and most misunderstand about our gut.

-Chapters that outline how your gut works, How to have a healthy gut, and what to do to improve gut health

From what you should eat (or not) to how often you should poo, to the microbiome and the brain/gut connection - this taboo-tackling book applies science to every day, with simple illustrations, checklists, FAQs, and myth busters, all supported by the latest medical research. Gut: An Owner's Guide won't just help you understand your body; it might even change your life.
