Okay in a laze on the beach kind of way.,
This review is from: Does Anything Eat Wasps?: And 101 Other Questions (New Scientist) (Paperback)
This type of book is the perfect book to take on holiday and read on the beach. Rather like the sea itself, you can dip in and out of it as you wish without worrying about losing your place (unless you are in Spain!!)
Most of the book is mildly interesting, some of it is tedious and to be honest not only do you not know the answer to certain questions, you don't actually care either. On the other hand, one or two of the questions and accompanying answers are absolute gems.
There are better examples of these answer odd question type of books or general reviews of life itself. That said, it's worth the price for a decent read (ideally on holiday) but I doubt I'll bother reading my copy again and again.
