Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I got lost in this book for hours. There are answers to questions I didn't even know to ask--and they're all fascinating. This book holds the kind of fun and unique facts that will impress and amaze your friends. Do you know why the sea is salty? Why $ means dollars? Why Swiss cheese has holes? Why prostitutes are called "hookers"? Why tennis balls are fuzzy?

Intrigued? I was. Now you'll have to buy this book to discover the answers. . . .

--Cassie Nylen, Copy Assistant

From the Inside Flap

ws that...donuts have holes...we clink glasses before saying a toast...golfers yell "fore!" before teeing off...we nod our heads yes and shake our heads no...But how many of us know why? You'll learn the answers and a whole lot more in this fun and fact-filled almanac. And all you have to do is ask WHY?!
