Author Essay

I got lost in this book for hours. There are answers to questions I didn’t even know to ask–and they’re all fascinating. This book holds the kind of fun and unique facts that will impress and amaze your friends. Do you know why the sea is salty? Why $ means dollars? Why Swiss cheese has holes? Why prostitutes are called "hookers"? Why tennis balls are fuzzy?

Intrigued? I was. Now you’ll have to buy this book to discover the answers. . . .
