  • What Einstein Didn’t Know
    by Robert L. Wolke
    ISBN: 0440508568
    "If I dropped a BB from the top of the world’s tallest building and it hit somebody on the head, would it kill him?" This is just one of a sample of the questions found in each of these books by Robert L. Wolke. The answer is no, it wouldn’t. Wolke explains why in detail. If you have curious children, you’ll find this a handy reference book for answering some of their questions. It’s also a fun book to just sit and read. My husband has a saying he picked up, "Some people are like ketchup bottles, you have to whap ‘em to get anything out of ‘em." Setting aside the fact that you don’t really want to be whapping people, let’s look at the underlying supposition behind this statement–when you can’t get the ketchup to come out of the bottle, whap the bottle on the end. Does whapping a ketchup bottle on the end actually work? Wolke has the answer. Apparently the best way to get ketchup from a bottle winds up with ketchup on the walls. Wolke turns to Sir Isaac Newton to discredit the old pound on the end of the bottle method. He proceeds to give two methods Sir Isaac would approve as based on his three laws of motion. Whirling the bottle would be the messier of the two.

    If after reading these books you want to pull some bit of knowledge back out for the edification of friends and family and their general amazement at your grasp of scientific matters, there’s a handy index in the back of the book. Of course once you establish yourself as the authority on answering questions about why things are the way they are, you may find yourself hoping that Wolke writes a third book.
