Curious Folks Ask:

162 Real Answers on Amazing Inventions, Fascinating Products, and Medical Mysteries

By Sherry Seethaler

“Dr. Seethaler has written an excellent book for any interested student of science. She answers great questions about the world around us in this fascinating book. As a high school science teacher, I encounter many of these from my own students. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who has pondered questions starting with ‘how, ’ ‘what, ’ or ‘why.’”

–Ernest James Lo, Science Teacher, Woodside High School, Woodside, CA
