The Big Book of Why
Our minds seemingly have an infinite ability to question. Some of these ponderings seem daft at first, but once you start to think about it, you realise there really is no such thing as a stupid question.
For example, outside our offices is a beautiful horse chestnut tree. While writing this, I’m watching some birds hopping through their branches. But why do some birds hop, while others run? Find out on page 56. Or maybe you’re reading this as you stand in the magazine aisle at the supermarket. Is there a delicious smell wafting from the bakery? So how does your brain know it’s delicious? All is revealed on page 12. Or maybe you’ve bought the magazine already and are now enjoying it with a glass of cola. But could you enjoy the same fizzy drink in space? Check out page 28.
Children often have incredibly enquiring minds, and their supply of ‘But whys?!’ is inexhaustible. So, if you find yourself struggling to come up with a satisfactory explanation for all their questions, then we’re sure you can find the answers in The Big Book Of Why?, brought to you by BBC Focus.
But even if you don’t have kids, there are oodles of facts here to feed the curious mind. We’ve covered all the bases, including animals, the environment, space, the human body, and much more. So, get ready to start impressing your friends and family, and maybe you’ll even win your next pub quiz!
