Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

New for 1999--the completely unrevised old edition! Abrahams, the editor of AIR and the creator of the Ig Nobel prize, collects some brisk interviews with actual, live Nobel laureates, highlights from Ig Nobel Prize ceremonies, and reports of genuine and concocted research, including: the effects of peanut butter on the rotation of the earth; the aerodynamics of potato chips; and the taxonomy of Barney. Not to be missed (again).
