Possibly it's me who has a bias, and I wouldn't discourage anybody from reading this excellent compilation, but I felt the need to mention this.
All of the information in the book has been previously published in Scientific American, in many cases in 2007 or 2008, but, whilst it doesn't say so, in at least one instance the information has been updated because an article on the necessity or otherwise for a big toe, originally published in 2007, makes reference to Oscar Pistorius competing in the 2012 Olympics.
Overall, this is an entertaining collection of articles which lays some ghosts to rest.
