Your laptop mysteriously crashes. There's a fresh red wine stain on the carpet. An overhead bird targets your windshield. Sh-t, as they say, happens - to all of us. But have you ever thought about why such accidents occur? It's not just bad luck. What causes the mishaps that can ruin your day?

In Why Sh-t Happens, esteemed scientist Peter J. Bentley tackles the realm of everyday disaster through a highly empirical approach informed by wit and humor. Bentley brilliantly explores accident on a molecular level, arming you with an essential understanding of what went wrong and explaining how to prevent future bouts of misfortune.

Science is respected, trusted, and according to Bentley, widely misunderstood. When your car engine is damaged by the wrong gasoline or the milk goes bad in the fridge, science is not to blame, but rather can provide an explanation. As he makes his way, mishap by mishap, through an imaginary day in which Murphy's Law reigns supreme, Bentley reveals the scientific truths from which our daily aggravations originate.

Sh-t will always happen, and now you will know exactly why. Enter, if you dare, the most accident-prone day of your life.

    " I'd been looking forward to reading this, but for whatever reason, it just wasn't what I expected. I'm still plodding through it bit by bit, but there's an awful lot of skimming taking place. "

    " Fun and witty but not what I was hoping for. I thought the summary on the back was a bit misleading. It was too scientific for me. But it was still fun and easy to read. "
