Do Elephants Jump? by David Feldman was a truly comical book. This book is nonfiction but not all on one subject. People write and send letters containing questions starting with who, what, when, where, how, and why. Some of the questions are pretty random, but I have never really thought about them before. Like, “How does the bus driver get inside the bus, when the button to open the door is inside?” When I read that I really wanted to know. There are about 7 different books full of 32 ques [...]
Sometimes I find myself thinking, "What could go wrong with pointless information?".
My kids and I love to read this myth-busting, useless knowledge, and curious trivia book.
In between several mysteries, picked up this book as a light read. It did not disappoint me. Lots of information. Will you really use it anytime soonobably notbut so is several things we do in school. Have read another book in this series too and definite recommend for a trivia lover or any curios person.
Have you ever wondered about such things as: Why do our noses run when it's cold?, Why do fish take the bait more right before and during a rain?, Why is he called the Lone Ranger when Tonto was always by his side? (I was surprised to find out the story behind this one) If thoughts like these cross your mind at times, then David Feldman is your go-to guy. With the help of those knowledgeable in many different fields, Mr. Feldman does his best to find a concise answer. The results can sometimes b [...]
THIS ONE HAS THE INDEX. There are ten "Imponderables" books. I enjoyed thumbing through the odd questions/answers (eg "Why did Pilgrim's hats have buckles" answer: they did nottistic license.)but enjoyed the index even more. For example, you'd have to go to page 68 of volume 11 to find out why the phrase "run amok" is used. Or volume 4, page 102 will tell you "Blueprints, color of". Reasonable fun.
Imponderables? Guess I am just not curious enough about most things. But it was a quick, skim thru sort of book and did have some interesting tid bits. Apparently this guy has done other similar books. And it was interesting to read why Donkey Kong was names, when there are no donkeys in the game!
I enjoy trvia/popular culture/infomration books. This entry is one of the Imponderables series of books by David Feldman.I have read several of them. They are quick, humorous light reads--but you do get a lot of information.Recommended for lovers of quizzes, trivia and popular culture.
This is a very good book. I enjoyed reading it, and will read more of the Imponderable series and will recommend it to family and friends and everyone else. It has something of interest for all ages. I am looking forward to the next Imponderable .
Perhaps I've read too many of these now but it was up to his usual standards. I didn't however like the very large final chapter where he answered letters because he didn't specify which imponderables he was talking about other than in the text while reading so they all blurred together.
It was a fun read!

As always with one of these books, some of the questions and answers were more interesting than others. Some of the answers were way too lengthy and some of theme were fascinating.
Saya suka banget sama pertanyaan-pertanyaan trivia yang ada di sini :> Buku yang saya baca waktu masih SD dan masih terkenang sampai sekarang :)
I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/13597775
This Imponderables book is a lot newer and actually incorporates the internet. There are links in the book so that you can see what things look like, etc.
Nice but, really there are a lot of other Imponderables books out there.
This series is really aimed at Abe and kids like him who really want to know how things work--budding engineers
Interesting at first - but too many imponderables for one read.
interesting but not as good as "The Book of Useless Information" or "Six Word Memoirs."
