Summary
Why does the dominant partner in any sexual relationship usually sleep on the side of the bed nearest the door? Is there a direct relationship between the length of hemlines and the state of the national economy? Are odd numbers evil? And why do drivers with hats drive twenty miles per hour slower than those without? These are the big questions of life, and it takes a brave man to tackle them. Author, broadcaster, and columnist Peter FitzSimons is the ideal guide to the weird world of the popular theory, the urban myth, and the land of "did you know . . .?" His offbeat, insightful, and painfully funny takes on our world will have readers laughing out loud and recounting every last anecdote to friends and family. FitzSimons' knack for witty and wise observations of everything from relationship phenomena to street traffic is sure to leave all American readers wondering why they haven't read him until now. A perfect gift for the man who has everything but answers
Summary
A lighthearted assessment of popular theories, urban myths, and more is an anecdotal collection of the Sydney Morning Herald columnist's observations on everything from relationship phenomena to street-traffic coincidences
