From the Publisher:

The veteran science correspondent of National Public Radio and host of the public television series Newton's Apple explores the mysteries of everyday life with a "genial and enthusiastic . . . fan's approach to science."--New York Times Book Review

From Publishers Weekly:

A combination of contagious enthusiasm and the ability to discuss scientific subjects in entertaining, lay terms (which characterizes science reporter Flatow's popular TV series Newton's Apple) is reflected in this summary of questions most frequently asked by his viewers. He explores a wide spectrum of phenomena that most of us accept as a matter of course: causes of waves, whitecaps and hurricanes, the physics of golf and baseballs in motion, the aerodynamics of sailing. The author explains not only scientific wonders of the universe but those found in the home: microwave ovens, the cleaning properties of soap and detergents, and the concert hall-like acoustics of the shower. He also provides practical advice on such varied topics as how to cook eggs, install a phone and select a CD player or TV. Illustrations. Literary Guild selection.
