About the Author:

David Feldman is the author of ten previous volumes of Imponderables®. He has a master's degree in popular culture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and consults and lectures on the media. He lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

Remarkably, this is the tenth installment in the Imponderables series. Who'd have thought there were so many interesting, trivial, nagging, and just plain mind-boggling questions that needed to be answered? Why does the pope change his name when he assumes his papal duties? How does the hole get in a syringe's needle? Does P.U. (as in "P.U., that stinks") mean anything? Why don't bars put sawdust on their floors anymore? And on and on. Like all the Imponderables books, this one is pretty straightforward: questions and answers, accompanied by some letters from curious readers. But it's more than a trivia quiz book, because it really does spark one's curiosity about the world. As you read, you find yourself thinking: yeah, why is that, anyway? Why do toads have warts, and why do pianos have 88 keys, and, for crying out loud, do elephants jump? Fans of the series will consider this one a must-have. It's also ideal for people who like to amuse and astound their friends with esoteric knowledge. David Pitt
