Why You Can Never Get to the End of the Rainbow by Don Glass

Book Description

Have you ever wondered: why cats' eyes glow in the dark? why a rubber band snaps back? what the world looks like to a bee? how aspirin works? what life would be like without zero? This book contains the answers to these questions and dozens more. Written for readers of all ages with little or no background in science, it is the perfect armchair companion for curious people who want to know more about science in everyday life but have only a moment to spare. The short essays help remove some of the mystery of science, giving readers clear and concise information in language that is easy to understand. And they are fun to read. Why can one rotten apple spoil the barrel? The answer is just a moment of science away.
