Haven't we all asked ourselves the title question at one point or another in our life? This book provides the answer as well as a a tremendous amount of information which will make for many months of cocktail party and watercooler conversations. The book is a collection of articles from the 'This Week' section of England's Guardian newspaper and is similar to the 'Reality' column in the New York Times. The questions answered cover a wide range of topics in numerous areas of science and medicine including suspended animation, cloning, weapons technology and the natural world to name a few. The articles are written in a clear and consise manner and are understandable by any layperson. All in all this is a very interesting book.

This book's great cover is what originally attracted me to it, but once I started reading I just couldn't stop! I don't know what I did more of, learn or laugh. Pick this one up, it's fantastic.
