From the Publisher:

Cecil Adams is at it again. His first two books covered everything from the real lyrics to "Louie, Louie" to whatever became of Einstein's brain. (Answer: it's in a bunch of bottles in Weston, Missouri). You've probably thought you couldn't stand any more. But wait! Can you bear to live another minute without knowing:

Can people really hear radio broadcasts through their teeth?
What is a merkin?
So how do porcupines mate?
What got into this guy Phillips that made him think we needed a new kind of screwdriver?

And there's a raunchy chapter on sex education that may put an end to romance forever.
