This book is for people who are curious about the world around them, but who may be a bit intimidated by science.

What Einstein Didn't Know provides intriguing answers to questions such as - Why are some flames blue and others yellow? - How does soap "know" what's dirt? - Why won't oil and water mix?

With sections called "Try It" providing forty-eight fun demonstrations that can be performed without special equipment and "Bar Bets" -- offering true statements that may or may not win a round of drinks, readers will discover that they can incorporate the lessons learned from this book into their everyday lives.

Chapter topics include "Around the House", "In the Kitchen", and "The Great Outdoors". And whenever explanations threaten to become more than you want to know, the details are banished to a "Nitpicker's Corner".

What Einstein Didn't Know is a book that makes learning about how and why things work (a.k.a. science) fun for everyone.
