As the title saids, this book is about answering real life conundrums There is a lot of what if questions that are readily answer A reader with some background in high school or college physics will enjoy this book As a student getting a science PhD, I find this book very entertaining to read It answers questions in understandable English.
Certain things I think can be explained a little better, like why the atmosphere is thinner at higher altitude Or the difference between static friction and rolling friction But these are just nicky picky little things.
Overall, this book is a joy to read If you are curious about how things in life work or scenarios that you take for granted like why birds don t get electrocuted standing on wires , you should pick up this book You ll undoubtebly learn a lot.


I ll bet nobody ever fell asleep in Professor Wolke s chemistry class With his informal, humorous and chatty style, he truly makes science not only fun but also genuinely easy to understand for even the most scientifically challenged of us His new book covers the whole universe literally Professor Wolke takes you on a vicarious trip to the bottom of our oceans, to the depths of outer space and to many familiar and unfamiliar places in between On the way you will be amazed the frigid tile floor and the cozy mat in your bathroom are the same temperature , entertained Why are oceans salty , and educated it is NOT humid in the summer time because warm air holds moisture And just because this is a fun, bedside book, do not for an instant assume that it is somehow not serious or useful because it is both Here you will learn some very practical applications of science For example, how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, and vice versa, without complicated formulas how to eliminate wrinkles from your clothing how to instantly defog your car s windshield and rear window This is a book that you will be unable to put down don t worry it s not a long read , but one that you won t have to since you ll carry around its unforgettable lessons forever The book is an easy reading if you have a little flair for natural sciences Well chosen topics and arrangements The humor is sometimes entertaining, sometimes odd The bar bet category is redundant imagine yourself offering a bar bet that it is not cold in outer space what do you talk about in the pub Altogether better than many other competitors like the series on imponderables , because it is a little advanced, a little serious, and a little space devoting to each topic typically a few pages a topic.
