And how do they get the mint flavoring on toothpicks? June 29 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
And why do we kiss under mistletoe? And why are blueprints blue? I can think of no other book which is brave enough to answer these questions. Fans of the other "Imponderables" books will not be disappointed by this one, as it is similar in nature to the rest of the series. Readers who have never before delved into the realm of Imponderables are also in for a treat. "Why Do Dogs Have Wet Noses?" is light, clever, and just plain funny. However, I must warn you that you may possibly learn something from it. Who would have thought that a book that is basically a series of odd questions and answers could be so thoroughly enjoyable?

Where do all the lost socks go? Feb. 25 2009
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Why Dogs Have Wet Noses? And Other Imponderables" has been around for nearly twenty years but it hasn't lost its charm. David Feldman answers some questions I've been wondering about for years. Like "Why do foreign pop and rock performers sing with an American accent?" Or have you ever wondered why peaches are fuzzy? Then there is the question of the missing socks. My own take on socks is that they get caught inside other clothes and are rediscovered later, however I do have some socks that have never reappeared. Where did they go? This book gives some insight into question like this and most of them are fun and enjoyable to read. In this book you will also find out why woodpeckers don't get headaches and why colored soaps don't yield colored suds. For the most part this book is very enjoyable to read and is a fun break from more serious subjects.

Wonderful, Stress-free Reading Nov. 20 2008
By Michael Gooch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you want to know the little known of life, this is the book for you. The research is very well done considering this is not curing cancer. It is just a tremendously fun read and one you will want to read in one sitting. It is also the type of book where you can read for a couple of minutes (maybe one topic) and always come back later. I read the book 7 or 8 years ago and just re-read it last night. I was suprised at the things I had forgotten and the few things I remembered. You want fun, get this book!

Very interesting information! Aug. 8 2001
By Carl A. Redman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This books provides the reader with answers to questions he might have always wondered about, but didn't know where or who to ask (or even to ask to at all!). David Feldman has written several other books of "Imponderables," which is actually a trademarked name for the types of questions posed in the book.
My favorite questions included What is the purpose of the orange balls on power lines, Why are there no photographs in the Wallstreet Journal, Why do eyes sometimes turn out read in pictures, Why do so few houses in the south have basements, Why is a piece of tissue paper included in wedding invitations, What function does the necktie serve, Why does soap yield white suds. How do kangaroos clean their pouches, Why does the groom carry the bride over the threshold.
This book is a great read. I would especially recommend keeping it in the bathroom, as it is an ideal book to read a page or two at a time.
