Misconceptions: A Guide to the World's Most Popular Myths

by Tim Rayborn Author

Dive into some of the biggest lies you didn't even know you'd been told with this new book from author Tim Rayborn. In Misconceptions, you'll learn all about how some of the strange conventions we adhere to came about, even if they make absolutely no sense given what science tells us. There's no need to wait thirty minutes before swimming after eating, gum doesn't actually take seven years to digest once swallowed, sugar doesn't make kids hyper, and lightning does in fact sometimes strike the same place twice. With factoids on history, science, wildlife, and more, this book makes learning about the weird world around us that much more fun.
