    Can reindeer fly? Could scientists clone the perfect Christmas tree? Why is Rudolph's nose red? How does Santa manage to deliver presents to an estimated 842 million households in a single night? These are among the questions explored in this irresistibly witty audiobook, which illuminates the cherished rituals, legends, and icons of Christmas from a unique and fascinating perspective: science. "Just what the elves ordered," raves Newsweek.

    Overall

    Good book but really focuses more on the anthropological standpoints in Christmas than physics.
    I had been expecting something a bit more like the physics of what it would take for Santa to go around the world in one night - this really wasn't covered.

    Overall

    Muffled recording.
    Thick nearly incomprehensible accent.
    Too many musical tracks - which are too loud.
    Auditorily disturbing.
    I'm not sure whether or not there was decent information since I could barely understand it.
