This book is fascinating if one reads no more than the table of contents! With a jacket photo of semiweightless astronauts and chapter sections titled ‘Am I in My Bed Hanging from the Ceiling?,’ ‘The Art of Breaking,’ ‘What If Newton Had Wanted to Catch the Apple?,’ and ‘“Go Where I’m Looking,” Not “Look Where I’m Going”’ among others, how could one not investigate further?… Anyone who has ever wondered, ‘How did I catch that?,’ ‘How did I hit that?,’ or ‘How in the world did I get out of the way of that?!’ will find this a good read.—L. A. Meserve, Choice
