LoveReading View on Will We Ever Speak Dolphin?

October 2012 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

The seventh in the phenomenally brilliant and best selling series. Complied from the ‘Last Word’ section of the New Scientist magazine, where readers write in with interesting and obscure questions - which are then answered by other (v clever) readers. Perfect for someone who thinks they know everything or for everyone else who loves dipping in and out of fascinating scientific trivia.


Will We Ever Speak Dolphin? Synopsis

The latest title in the bestselling Last Word series. Why do birds sing at dawn? What's the slowest a plane can fly without stalling and falling out of the sky? And how long can you keep a tiger cub as a pet? Will We Ever Speak Dolphin? The eagerly-awaited new Last Word collection, has the answers to these questions and many more. Seven years on from Does Anything Eat Wasps? , the New Scientist series still rides high in the bestseller lists, with well over two million copies sold. Popular science has never been more stimulating or more enjoyable. Like Why Don't Penguins Feet Freeze? Do Polar Bears Get Lonely? and Why Can't Elephants Jump? this collection of wry and well-informed answers to a remarkable range of baffling questions is guaranteed to delight.
