Reviews of “Why Does Asparagus Make Your Wee Smell?”:

  • “An entertaining read that is pitched just about right. It is clear enough for non-specialists to follow, while for those familiar with chemical concepts it goes far enough beyond the basics to encourage further reading.” – Chemistry World
  • “Taps into a rich vein of popular interest in… food and diet to explain chemistry concepts like optical isomerism, the body’s breakdown of drugs, how fluorescence works, and which molecules give you garlic breath. Brunning deals with these in a chatty but informative style accompanied by his trademark clear, colourful graphics.” – Science Book a Day
