Editorial Reviews

"Scheckel groups his queries into broad categories such as 'The Exquisite Human Body' and 'At the Fringes of Science' and often expands on informal but direct explanations with further comments on related topics—plus brief instructions for spinning eggs, making campfires burn different colors, and like homespun experiments or activities . . . . along with trucking in physical principles to explain why cats land on their feet (it has to do with conservation of angular momentum) and like standard-issue mysteries, he poses some head-scratchers ('Why is there a big E on the top of the eye chart?') that will startle and maybe enlighten even older readers. Assorted revelations for enquirers who prefer their science straight up but not without occasional (semi-) comical relief." —Kirkus Reviews
