The Compound Interest book, “Why Does Asparagus Make Your Wee Smell?”, was released in the UK back in October 2015, but there’s good news for US followers of the site: it’s now available across the pond too!

For UK followers, Amazon has actually been sold out of the book for a little while (there are still copies available there, but they’re from second party vendors and tend to be on the pricey side of things). Though they will be getting more stock in eventually, it’s probably cheaper to purchase a copy from Waterstones.

If you’re in the US, the book is published by Ulysses Press, and is available online through Amazon, or through Barnes & Noble, as well as in book stores. It’s also available in Germany (where it has a different title), in German; again, the easiest way to grab a copy is through Amazon.

Publication is also planned for Japan and South Korea, hopefully within the year. Additionally, if you’re waiting for the UK paperback release, it’s planned for October this year, and is already available for pre-order!

Finally, thanks to everyone who’s already bought the book – it’s been great to hear how much people have enjoyed reading it. Teaching, and running the site, doesn’t leave a great deal of spare time to work on the follow-up, but I’m currently putting some ideas together, so watch this space!

      You’d be surprised to know that this title was put in place after customer feedback, and it’s actually selling surprisingly well with it! Just goes to show that the general public loves a bit of toilet humour 🙂
