    How does soap know what's dirt? How do magnets work? Why do ice cubes crackle in your glass? And how can you keep them quiet? These are questions that torment us all. Now Robert L. Wolke, professor emeritus of chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh, provides definitive - and amazingly simple - explanations for the mysteries of everyday life.

    Story

    I listened to this and the sequel "What Einstein told his cook" and was fascinated with both. With a background in science and engineering, I learned a few fun facts reading the book. I would recommend this to anyone, regardless of their level of scientific knowledge. The book is well written and narrated, except for a few bad puns and jokes (which I really did enjoy with a small smile ;-).

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story

    This book i snot up to Mr. Brown's past. Every situation that occurs, at first there doesn't seem to be a way out but at the last minute a solution seems to materialize out of nowhere. While the action is good and the book moves along, the believability suffers as the story progresses.

    On the good side, the references to Dante and history did prompt me into looking up the details. I learned a few things of history that I did not know before. This is Mr. Brown's forte.

    A good read but not spectacular.
