Does Anything Eat Wasps...Edited by Mick O'Hare

Does Anything Eat Wasps?
(Does Anything Eat Wasps?)

A collection of short articles concerning the everyday with a scientific bias, which stem from observations and answers supplied by correspondents around the world to the New Scientist magazine.

It is interesting stuff: the fastest way to pour fluid from a bottle, the optimal order in which to combine beer and lemonade, and the feasible return radius of lost bees from their hives, are examples of the material covered.

Interesting, but perhaps not immediately practical and therefore constantly at risk of being as useless as fiction. But it is an enjoyable read and could be useful if your mission were to inspire curiosity in colleagues or a class of iPod-ed teenagers.
