    1. I downloaded this title as an e book freebie Reading it exclusively on my Blackberry while waiting for things, I finished it in about a month On the one hand, I m glad I started making use of the time on the other hand, I m appalled by how much of my life is wasted on interstices.The QA format was perfect for reading on the bb s tiny screen The contents were in convenient bite sized pieces, and there was no plot continuity to worry about.My favorite trivia tidbit Synesthesia is a disorder where [...]

    2. This book was in a question and answer format somebody wrote in a science question, and the author anwers it I think that my favourite question was how does a frost free freezer work because I have many memories of taking everything out of our freezer in the basement and chipping out big chunks of ice

    3. I was expecting so much out of this book Frankly, many of the questions answered I either already had some clue about, or else absolutely could not care less about Probably a decent bathroom book, nothing .

    4. I read this book on my Kindle when I had a few bits of time here and there Each question is presented followed by a brief answer A lot of the answers had associated websites provided if you wanted to read information I really enjoyed reading about things I never thought of before and those that didn t interest me, I just skipped Fun to read for those small windows of time I also picked up another Curious Folks Ask book for the same purpose.

    5. This was a free download that I read on a cross country flight Quick read, question answer format, enjoyable Some questions I skipped because either I didn t care or didn t understand what the author was saying.

    6. Very interesting.Answers to a broad spectrum of questions are answered in this book like what purpose to fingernails serve.I look forward to reading the next book and getting answers to obscure questions.

    7. I found the book extremely boring.Like another reviewer mentioned, you either know the facts mentioned in the book or just don t care about them.There are too many good books out there to be wasting your time on this.

    8. Uncle Cecil meets Mr Wizard to produce a somewhat smart bathroom reader Any curious person would be familiar with at least some of these answers The scientifically curious would know Good for teens or refresher knowledge.

    9. It was a boring book I usually enjoy the format of Q A in books, as it enables me to jump to the questions that I m interested in and ponder about answers, however this book had some boring questions that I didn t really care about.

    10. This book was free when I downloaded it to my Nook This is the second book I read by this author This is the type of general science I enjoy reading Seethaler explains what I need to known in a concise, easy to remember format I recommend it for all readers.

    11. Liked the little stories, but I thought the ebook format wasn t great for the book This book seems like the type you want in front of you so you can flip around and pick up interesting tidbits at random.

    12. This book would be good for the consumer who has questions about scientific topics brought up on the news For those of us with scientific backgrounds or who are curious about interesting phenomena, this won t be too interesting.

    13. Nice bite sized answers to some common questions I did know a lot of them, but some were new and the book held my interest.

    14. To be honest, I was not very curious about most of the topics covered in this book.It read very much like a textbook.

    15. This was another Kindle freebie so worth what I paid for it Actually parts were quite interesting, like a series of essays on obscure subjects.

    16. Got this free for my Kindle It is made up of science questions asked and explained These come from a newspaper column It was a very quick read and I learned some new stuff.

    17. This book reminds me of one of my favorite series from years ago, Why Things Are by Joel Aachenback I would highly recommend this for anyone who liked those books or others like them.

    18. I learned a few things, but the tone didn t really engage me neither light enough nor serious enough However, it would be a good thing to give to a curious teenager.

    19. Lots of interesting information, but the reader submitted questions could have used some smoothing over for tone Some of them came off as weirdly antagonistic, and it was jarring.

    20. Nice summer reading just to relax Nothing too complex but engaging enough to read in the beach and still have some fun.

    21. Interesting answers to science questions One thing I really liked is that the answers were science and no old wives tales or political agenda Something hard to find in today s published books.

    22. This book was disapointing I thought I would learn new things only to have it be filled with things I already knew.

    23. This book wasn t bad, but it wasn t good either I found most parts rather boring The only parts I liked or found the least bit interesting were the parts about the body I m glad it s over with.
