by Charles J. Cazeau

What is the difference between an asteroid and a comet? Why do some people cross their fingers when they are hoping for something? Answering these questions and about 450 more, Cazeau provides enough scientific food for thought to appease the most inquisitive of minds. Topics range from the solar system to human genes and superstitious practices. Answers provide a condensed science lesson, sometimes including an historical background, examples, and even follow-up answers to questions the author expects his readers will have.
