Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why does an X stand for a kiss? Which fruits are in Juicy Fruit® gum? Why do people cry at happy endings? Why do you never see baby pigeons?

Pop-culture guru David Feldman demystifies these topics and so much more in Why Don't Cats Like to Swim? — the unchallenged source of answers to civilization's most perplexing questions. Part of the Imponderables® series, Feldman's book arms readers with information about everyday life — from science, history, and politics to sports, television, and radio — that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don't have. Where else will you learn what makes women open their mouths when applying mascara?

Review:

"Feldman offers such a fresh way of looking at phenomenonas...that he makes us see it as if for the first time. This is an entertaining collection of trivial and not so trivial information." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Originally published as: Imponderables. New York: Perennial, 1987.
