Quotes & Awards

  • “This audioprogram is composed of six edited interviews with prominent scientists. Paul Hoffman is a delightful interviewer, who asks questions of interest to the nonspecialist and explains technical scientific terms when needed. Also, great background sounds accompany the interviews, such as ocean sounds during the oceanography discussion.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh McDevitt-Spall | 1/2/2014

    " Not entirely sure what it means about me that I actually preferred some of the comedian answers in the back to a number of the actual scientifically correct answers in the book. Maybe I'm just a heathen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Scheinman | 12/29/2013

    " What a fun, fun book. My favorite answer is from Mary Roach on cows, farts and outerspace! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Key | 10/17/2013

    " Actually I have only read some of it! As I bought for someone for a gift i flipped through some of the pages. The answer by Jeanette Winterson to "What is Love" is just brilliant. I will be buying my own copy and more as gifts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 6/27/2013

    " I read a rave review of this book, but I found it only mildly interesting. "

    " I really liked this book, what a fun read! so many great answers to such great questions from kids. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hafiz Rahman | 2/18/2010

    " This is actually a six-stars book. Not enough questions, not enough answers! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Ensign | 1/16/2010

    " Borrowed this from the library in order to decide whether to buy a copy. Just read a few of the questions and answers. It has many interesting questions and answers, and is a book I would pick up and read a little of from time to time. I decided not to buy it, however. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katy | 5/5/2008

    " Yes, you can eat a worm. If you really have to. But you should probably cook it first. Bear Grylls likes them boiled with some pine needles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/9/2006

    " I read part of this book. It is a good idea and probably good reading for parents so they can answer their children's questions, but I got kind of bored with it. The explanations vary in accessibility to children (and creativity and funness). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 9/1/2001

    " Cute concept. I didn't read it cover to cover but mostly glanced at a few stories.neat idea for a fundraiser as intended. "
