Who said that physics has to be dull? In this rip-roaring science puzzle adventure, Byrne and Cassidy put the reader in the driving seat. Is a truck containing a bird lighter when the bird is flying or on a perch? Why does the stream from a tap get increasingly thinner? Can you speed up light? Is time travel possible? Featuring a cast of odd-ball characters and a laugh-out-loud storyline, Byrne and Cassidy explain the basic principles of modern science and guide the reader in working out the rest. With thirty stimulating mindbenders of varying difficulty, including detailed clues and answers for each problem, How to Save the World with Salad Dressing is the perfect book for anyone with an interest in science or mathematics. Thomas Byrne is a fledgling genius and professional puzzle writer. Thomas Cassidy is former teacher and Oxford University Physics graduate. He is married to a Texan and spends much of the year in Austin. They are the authors of How to Win at Russian Roulette:And Other Outrageous Logic Problems
