Book Summary

Discover how cricket chirps can tell us the temperature, why you cant unburn a match, why ice floats, and a host of mysteries of modern living — including some riddles that maybe even Einstein couldnt solve. From the simple (How does soap know whats dirt? How do magnets work? Why do batteries die?) to the more complex (Why does evaporation have a cooling effect? Where does uranium get its energy?), this book makes science more understandable and fun.
Author Robert Wolke provides definitive and easy-to-comprehend explanations for things that we take for granted, like the illumination behind neon signs and the mysteries of beverage carbonation. Wolke also dares readers to explore and conduct their own experiments with food, kitchen utensils, and common household products. This fifteenth anniversary edition of his bestselling popular science classic has been completely revised and expanded.

    This was a little light for someone who already holds a science degree, so I wouldn't recommend it to any of my science/engineering friends. For the layperson, this would probably be a fun read. Granted, I haven't used my science degree for almost a decade, so it was a bit fun to quiz myself to see if I could remember all the lingo. Lighthearted in tone, I thought it was a fun listen.
