Description

Praised as ?the man who put the fun into physics? by the International Herald Tribune, Dr. Len Fisher has written an exceedingly lively and entertaining book on the science of everyday life. Following the routine of a normal day, Fisher shows how the seemingly mundane can provide insight into the most profound scientific questions. He explores the art and science of dunking, how to boil the perfect egg, how to tally a supermarket bill, the science behind hand tools, the secrets of haute cuisine, catching a ball and throwing a boomerang, bath (or beer) foam, the physics of sex and much more. With wit and aplomb, How to Dunk a Doughnut uses easy-to-digest concepts and a sense of humor to show nonscientists what science is really all about.
