In Alex Boese's collection of odd experiments, readers can discover some of the world's weirdest hypotheses and how far scientists were willing to go to test their theories. Boese writes of scientific trials that range from amusing to absurd, which will continually pull you back in for more. One of the best qualities of this book is that it's broken up into sections; so whether you want to explore the depths of human sleep patterns or interesting experiments done on animals, you'll be able to delve into whatever subject interests you at the time. Also, because it's broken up into sections, you're able to pick it up and put it down whenever you'd like.
Offers an odyssey into the world of bizarre, outrageous, and provocative scientific experiments that seek to determine what happens to an elephant that is given a dose of LSD, would the average dog summon help in an emergency, and can life really be restored to the dead.
