Short Review
Why doesn’t stomach acid dissolve the stomach itself? Why are there more tornados in the Midwest than on the coast?  Such and similar 200 questions are answered in the book, shedding some light on the science behind them. This guide addresses questions in every major branch of science, including physics, chemistry, biology, geology, meteorology, astronomy, and cosmology. In a sense it’s like a science trivia book, which answers a variety of interesting science-related questions. All in all, the book does it’s job well, and, having in mind its cheap price, I would recommend it for fans of science trivia.
