Do you ever get trigger happy in the bookstore? Me too, which is why I have to ration my visits to a frequency that my credit card can support. However, today I was the victim of a drive-by book plug that had me reaching for the Barnes & Noble Buy Button in under 30 seconds. I literally didn’t wait until I read the entire review before purchasing.
A User’s Guide to the Universe by Dave Goldberg and Jeff Blomquist is a book I’ve been waiting for: Life, the Universe and Everything explained by people who know, for people who don’t, in a way that doesn’t make them go Huh?
Dave and Jeff (yes, I already feel like we need to be on a first-name basis) use humor and good-natured geek-fun to explain questions that anyone might ask, like What happens if you fall in a black hole? and Can you really break the light barrier?
I NEEDED to own this book (and NOT as an e-book, mind you, but that’s the subject of another post).
Not like I need food, air, my husband’s love or a kiss goodbye from my 6 year old. Need as in the pure knowledge that my life will be less rich without it.
And I was pretty sure Worm Burner would love it too.
Did I mention they have comics? And jokes?
So, what are you waiting for?
