Publisher's Summary

Ponder, if you will:
What is the difference between a kit and a caboodle?
Why don't people get goose bumps on their faces?
Where do houseflies go in the winter?
What causes that ringing sound in your ears? Pop-culture guru David Feldman demystifies these topics and so much more in Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise?, the unchallenged source of answers to civilization's most nagging questions. Part of the Imponderables series, Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise? challenges readers with the knowledge about everyday life that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don't have. And think about it, where else are you going to get to the bottom of why hot dogs come ten to a package while hot dog buns come in eights? Feldman cleverly adapts his irresistible book into a bedeviling audio multiple-choice quiz, complete with answers.

I agree with the first reviewer

There are three people, A, B, and C, who each give their "bluff" which could be the right answer. When it's all done and said, good luck remembering the real answer. For the money, it should have been a *lot* longer.

In addition, A, B, and C each give each other a hard time as though they each have the right answer and are truly playing a "game." It's obviously contrived, sarcastic, quite annoying, and wastes time.

The information would have been quite interesting on its own without all of the fluff.

One of the worst audio books I have ever heard.

A great way to pass time in the car

My wife and our two boys (16 and 6) had a great time with this audiobook. It's in quiz show / dictionary bluffing game format, and the bluffs are quite good. Good humor, good presentation.
