The Science of Everyday LifeBook - 2006 | Rev. ed
'Ingram's refreshing voice transforms mysteries onto compelling reading.'
Have you ever felt a sudden rush of recognition that you've been in a place before? What causes a déjà vu? Why do dogs look like their owners? What's up with insect swarms? What's the science behind showing your tongue? Do you keep drier by walking or running through a rainstorm?
In this updated and expanded edition of The Science of Everyday Life , bestselling author Jay Ingram explains these and many more weird and fascinating mysteries.
'Ingram . . . acts as a kind of cross between a clear-eyed journalist and a tongue-in-cheek comedian.'
