    One thought on “When Do Fish Sleep? And Other Imponderables Of Everyday Life”

    1. I was surprised when I read this book. This was because a lot of the things in the book, were things that I actually wondered. This book is worth it for sure.

    2. Some of these imponderables are very dated now, but there is enough still relevant to make this an entertaining and somewhat educational read.

    3. I like trivia so I thought I’d love this book so much that I bought two books in one shotand . I HATED the delivery. That’s 10 bucks burnt away.A fact is presented, and then 3 people propose a possible answer. (3 actors named A, B and C). The listener has 10 seconds to decide which answer is the correct one. Didn’t like this set-up, I wanted a fun litany of interesting facts - not a game show!!!Plus (especially in “When Do Fish Sleep”) in a lame and unsuccessful attempt at humour, A B [...]

    4. What ages would I recommend it too? Twelve and up. Length? Each story is a few pages.Characters? No.Setting? Real World before 1989.Written approximately? 1989.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Some answers have been updated in recent years.Short storyline: A question is asked, and answers are given for it. Some are really good, and some are funny.Notes for the reader: This book is a bit outdate [...]

    5. Perfect book of the category 'random interesting topics', or something I'd recommend for toilet reads or for any small breaks. Or any time when you are too tired to concentrate in a long story. Or on a long flight or something.Lots of interesting tidbits of information, but since it was published in the 1990s, 20-30 % of the trivia is already out of date. Very few people for instance actually use the yellow pages any more for anything (other than crafts or composting perhaps).

    6. When Do Fish Sleep? And Other Imponderables of Everyday Life by David Feldman (Harper and Row Publishers Inc. 1989) (031.02) is an excellent trivia read. Written and compiled on the order of "The Straight Dope," this doesn't quite rise to the level of Uncle Cecil's Straight Dope, but it comes close enough to make it an entertaining read. My rating: 6.5/10, finished 1/13/14.

    7. its a really fun book that answer those hard questions like when do fish sleep? or why goofy talks and pluto that is a dog too doesn't talk? or why mickey mouse and his friends just have 4 fingers?

    8. the book is pretty good and some what funny. the book will give you something that most people ask, such as why is a t.v. louder when commercials come on or the most common (which is the title of the book) when do fish sleep. very interestig and probably bound to keep you interested.

    9. Not as good as "Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise?" but still entertaining. These books are best reads a few pages at a time when you're bored and don't have anything else to read, during breaks at work, or on the bus.

    10. Excellent book, excellent author. David Feldman asks the unusual questions all of us wonder about. He goes to the professionals and gets to the bottom of all of our imaginations.

    11. The questions didn't interest me enough for me to read past the first third of the book, but it wasn't bad, if a bit outdated.

    12. This series has answered many questions for me and prompted many more. It's truly fascinating and well written.

    13. An interesting, if outdated, book attempting to answer some of life's toughest questions. Would be good for middle-schoolers without access to the internet.

    14. I learned very many things in this book that the uneducated wouldn't care about.If you're bored and want a small laugh or two, pick this one up.
