Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze? by New Scientist
Book DescriptionWhy Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze? is the latest compilation of readers' answers to the questions in the 'Last Word' column of New Scientist, the world's best-selling science weekly. Following the phenomenal success of Does Anything Eat Wasps? - the Christmas 2005 surprise bestseller - this new collection includes recent answers never before published in book form, and also old favourites from the column's early days. Yet again, many seemingly simple questions turn out to have complex answers. And some that seem difficult have a very simple explanation. New Scientist's 'Last Word' is regularly voted the magazine's most popular section as it celebrates all questions - the trivial, idiosyncratic, baffling and strange. This new selection of the best is popular science at its most entertaining and enlightening.

Author Biography - New Scientist
Mick O'Hare wears one hat as production editor for New Scientist and another as editor of The Last Word column of questions and answers at the back of the magazine. In this latter guise he edited Profile's recent bestselling book 'Does Anything Eat Wasps?' and its successor 'Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze?'. Mick joined New Scientist 14 years ago after being the production editor for Autosport. Because you can take the boy out of the north but you can't take the north out of the boy, he freelances as a rugby league writer and also edits sports books. More importantly he is a lifelong supporter of Huddersfield Rugby League Club. He has a geology degree but retains a healthy disregard for crystallography.
