I must have a sick or at least a bent mind. I walked into a used book store that I frequent, spotted the title, "When Did Wild Poodles Roam the Earth?" And I had to buy it. A thoroughly enjoyable book on Feldman's Imponderables that can be read all at once, or over a long period of time, ( i.e. bathroom book). Why did I just have to buy it you may ask? Here is the hook that got me, "wild poodles, roaring across the savanna like thunder, a famished, snarling pack of them advancing inexorably upon some heedless dinosaur prey...they are bloodthirsty , they are savage, they are shaggy..." That and the Thurber like cover art of the alert aggressive hunting pack of pom-pomed terrors sold me right on the spot. Yep, as we say here in East Tennessee, "I just ain't right".
Quit enjoyable and a good informative read in the same model as Feldman's, " Do Penguins Have Knees?" and , "Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise". A collection of numerous things that make you go....Huuummmmm. While David Feldman's books may never answer the eternal question of, "What is the meaning of Life?", they will answer just about all the others.
Again, a highly enjoyable and informative read, recommended !
