To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book contains a number of explanations of everyday phenomena which you might not have ever thought even needed exploration. In fact, these explanations turn out quite interesting. Makes for good party conversations. What seem to be pursuits of the trivial, are in support of Fisher 's assertion that scientists need the freedom to peruse seemingly unimportant questions for the possibility that the ultimate discovery might in fact be very important. As a compromise between science and popular literature, both the scientists and the lay readers may find this book a bit frustrating.
This is a highly entertaining approach to some everyday situations which would not normally be thought scientific, treated in a practical manner and showing the principles involved.. Thoroughly recommended. However, BEWARE: this is the American edition of "How to Dunk a Doughnut"; there is no warning that the contents are identical.
