Most likely the most overused word in the English language, this four-letter word has become the subject of the Anonymous Author's latest book release. "Seems to me we should know more about 'it' and appreciate just how much a part of our lives 'it' really is," says the Author.

Most likely the most overused word in the English language, this four-letter word has become the subject of the Anonymous Author's latest book release. "Seems to me we should know more about 'it' and appreciate just how much a part of our lives 'it' really is," says the Author.

According to Ava Styles, spokeswoman for Interpact Press, it's a change for the author who has written over 12 books in a more serious genre.

"Readers will be offended while laughing uncontrollably. Readers will definitely be unexpectedly educated," said Styles.

The pages are filled with comparisons to drugs, music and let's not leave out food. It's explicitly irreverent, sound effects included. "How do humans do it? How 'bout them thar bears, birds, cows or bulls ... and what about the Pope himself sitting on his throne?"

Ava Styles quotes the Author by saying, "No subject is taboo nor exempt from the Author's incredibly creative outlets. Religion, politics, food, all human senses, even animals are subject to the Author's treatment. The vast number of uses and applications for the word in question is truly astounding, and the hilarious illustrations bring the humorous side of 'everyone does it' to graphic life!"

"Let's teach children how to use the word properly. When it's okay to say it, when it's not. How to say it with one, two and up to seven syllables. How it can be any part of the English language: noun, verb, participle, gerund, animal, vegetable or mineral. So, parents and teachers: let's embrace the word. Either we teach the kids properly, or they will use it willy-nilly and the English language will really be up the creek," says the Anonymous Author.

Extensive research included vast resources ranging from The Chronicles of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to http://www.americanmafia.com/ , from Wikipedia to The Holy Bible.

"This book is hysterical. You just can't beat it down the drain. It keeps floating back up to the surface of your mind," wrote Thomas Fortenberry in Midwest Book Review about S**T - A S**tload of Practical Uses for the Most Flexible Word in the English Language.
