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.
