Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

How hot Hell is, how much is a scant teaspoon, the evolution of the supposed universal metric system, and the starting speed of a rifle bullet compared to creatures ranging from a rat flea to humans, are among the witty but informative facts and perspectives offered by Canadian journalist Strauss. More a leisure than a scholarly work, but could be used to interest high school students in various subjects. No bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 231-237) and index.
