From the trivial (Who won the first World Series?) to the imponderable (Who invented time?), from nature's mysteries (Why don't spiders stick to their webs?) to society's fears (What studies have been done on corporate mind control?), Jeeves has the answer to just about any question. The Ask Jeeves Web site lets users put their queries in simple, standard language so that they get the fastest, most efficient facts available online. From the vast holds of this Internet think tank, authors Erin Barrett and Jack Mingo have chosen the most thoughtful, the most fascinating, and the most obscure questions anyone has ever asked Jeeves. The book highlights Ask Jeeves's unique mix of solid information with witty, tongue-in-cheek delivery. Like the site, the book is structured for easy use, divided into dozens of pithy chapters from "Mysterious Machinery" to "A Walk in the Zoo." Web sources and clever follow-up questions are included.
