Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? by David Feldman, Kas Schwan

Here are the answers to questions that have been keeping you and your loved ones up nights, questions that have driven families to feuds, questions that nag and nag just won't let go. Have you ever wondered juts what purpose those warning labels on mattresses are supposed to serve? Or what happens to the trend that wears off tires? And how many meals have you spent pondering the perennially baffling question of why hot dogs come ten to a package while hot dog buns come in eight?

Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? has the solutions to these and scores of other Imponderables. David Feldman's witty and irresistible compendium of knowledge goes where other reference books fear to trend, uncovering closely guarded secrets, revealing long-hidden facts, and, like all other invaluable works of detection, never letting well enough alone. Whether you want to settle those arguments about the difference between a kit and a caboodle, or just curious about dry cleaning, Teflon, Wayne Gretzky, or chocolate bunnies, Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? is indispensable.

Author Biography: David Feldman is the author of Imponderables and How to Win at Just About Everything. He has a masters degree in popular culture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Formerly in the programming department of NBC-TV, he consults and lectures on the media and writes about a wide range of popular culture.
