9780060740924: Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise?: An Imponderables Book (Imponderables Series)

Ponder, if you will ...
What is the difference between a kit and a caboodle?
Why don't people get goose bumps on their faces?
Where do houseflies go in the winter?
What causes that ringing sound in your ears?

Pop-culture guru David Feldman demystifies these topics and so much more in Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? -- the unchallenged source of answers to civilization's most nagging questions. Part of the Imponderables® series and charmingly illustrated by Kassie Schwan, Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? challenges readers with the knowledge about everyday life that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don't have. And think about it, where else are you going to get to the bottom of why hot dogs come ten to a package while hot dog buns come in eights?

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 AudioFile:

From his book of "imponderables"--explanations of everyday phenomena--author David Feldman has selected two dozen questions that he adapts into an interactive multiple-choice quiz game. The format is ingenious, taking all passivity out of the listening experience. Feldman serves as host and moderator, with three actors playing the panelists, named "A" "B" and "C," who provide three possible answers to each imponderable. After a ten-second musical interlude, the listener must choose between the answers, testing wits with the panelists, after which Feldman provides the correct explanation. Even for those who have never thought about why some eggs are brown, why aluminum foil is shiny on only one side, or what makes whips crack, listeners young and old will enjoy this truly interactive audio game show.
