I bought mine about a year and a half ago and it does work well. If you are chronically constipated this is a huge help. Yes it is more then just a stool, it is made VERY sturdy too, I weighed 305 when I first got it and I never had any issues with it. I must admit I was really skeptical when I first saw it but if you do some research about the science behind it you'll see. I ordered mine from their website but this is a really good deal.

Why can't I just rest my feet on a footstool or something else I already have around the house? you could, but you would need two and room to store them. this is designed to fit up against the toilet and out of the way when not in use

Oh man that review is a riot! amzon review said: I had been intrigued by the promise that my business would henceforth require substantially less effort on my part, because of the wild beast–man position it forced upon me. But I was still skeptical. It sounded too good to be true. Surely the difference couldn't be that dras— HOLY HELL I'M POOPING. Well, let me clarify. It wasn’t so much that I was dropping a deuce. Oh, it was being dropped; that much was undeniable. But I couldn't really claim agency on said descent. Gravity was doing the work. I was merely the meaty husk from which it made its hasty escape. Used to more of a segmented approach to waste disposal, I was quite surprised that the creature making its egress from my nethers had more the appearance of a python. Smooth, and consistent in width, it coiled luxuriously in a pool of toilet water that is (or at least was) cleaner than the water that most of the people on this planet drink. As it continued to coil, my emotional state flowed from one of surprise, to horror, to amazement, and then again to horror as the snake coiled higher and higher, like soft serve ice cream...
In fatwallet spirit I tried out my rubbermaid small step stool and it did make the go easier. 7 1/2 inches high and under 10 bucks if you want to go on the cheap or have one already and want to see if this method works well for you before buying the official stool.
Have to get one now that Howard and Robin admit to using it! I heard that show too! It was TMZ that brought my attention to the product, but yeah, they were talking about Howard Stern. http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_vkza1cph

I've been using a $3 plastic magazine rack from BigLots (turn it upside down). It sort of looks like this (http://i.imgur.com/j50HGtWl.jpg), but more square. It's 9" high with a 12"x5" footprint. It's thin enough to store along side the toilet when not in use.
