Why Donâ€™t Penguinsâ€™ Feet Freeze? is the latest compilation of readersâ€™ answers to the questions in the â€˜Last Wordâ€™ column of New Scientist, the worldâ€™s best-selling science weekly. Following the phenomenal success of Does Anything Eat Wasps? â€“ the Christmas 2005 surprise bestseller â€“ this new collection includes recent answers never before published in book form, and also old favourites from the columnâ€™s early days.
Yet again, many seemingly simple questions turn out to have complex answers. And some that seem difficult have a very simple explanation. New Scientistâ€™s â€˜Last Wordâ€™ is regularly voted the magazineâ€™s most popular section as it celebrates all questions â€“ the trivial, idiosyncratic, baffling and strange. This new selection of the best is popular science at its most entertaining and enlightening.
