I have to admit that I was disappointed when I read this book. More precisely, I was disappointed when I turned the last page and there was no more to read! It was such a fun and informative book that it was hard to put down.
Want to know about Einstein’s brain? It is in the book. Want to know how well Edison and Tesla got along? It is in the book. The book is a collection of little known scientific facts and history—weird animals, feuding paleontologists, bouncy chemistry, cola–and–mint propelled vehicles, frog storms, strange lights in the sky, "Ig Nobel" prizes, literal–minded professors, the "Body Farm," and frozen heads. They are all here and more! This is a fun book to read, as well as informative. It has definitely become one of my favorites. I can highly recommend this book to all.
