    From the claim that a hot cup of tea on a warm day will cool you down to thinking there is no gravity in space, this book looks at things we think we know and explains why we are wrong. Among the topics examined and myths exploded are passwords, multi-tasking, sleep, the 'six degrees of separation', and food fads. Each section ends with a succinct statement of the science involved and most include website addresses for finding out more.
