'Ingram's refreshing voice transforms mysteries onto compelling reading.' MACLEAN'S 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?

Very good science, very engagingly told. I will def. share this with my entire family. I'd give it five stars, but none of it's at all 'important.' Still, it's important that people read this instead of their horoscope, so, thank you Jay Ingram. ( )

Great short little essays on, believe it or not, science in everyday life. I especially appreciate the annotated bibliography for each chapter. Not only does Ingram list general and popular science books, but also the actual academic journals in which much of the relevant research was published. Not necessary for all readers, but extremely helpful for those who wish to read about a certain topic in greater depth. ( )

About: The science of common things around us in our lives. Who gets the armrests on planes, how smart bees are, why we yawn and blink, why humans walk on two legs, why do teddy bears look like they do, the dynamics of bathroom behavior, why geese fly in V's are just some of the topics covered

Some things I learned:

Bugs always swarm over an object like a stalk of corn or beer can

We aren't sure why we yawn

Quills in the feathers of flying birds are always off to one side

You'll usually get less if you run in the rain

Bees are really smart

People usually wait longer to interrupt someone if the tip of their tongue is sticking out (as in concentration)

Pros: Very interesting, bite-sized chapters, well written and engaging, further reading section at end. If you like Mythbusters, you'll probably like this book.

Cons: Some topics aren't really "everyday" life ( )
