A s the official Webmaster for Xerox, Bill McLain was surprised by the kinds of questions he was receiving, questions like whether people born blind can see in their dreams and why rabbits are associated with Easter. McLain soon began to answer each and every question he received - attracting national attention from MSNBC, CNN, and People - and the result is collected in Do Fish Drink Water?, a surprising, funny, and informative collection of facts. McLain's answers - often as wild as the questions - prompt entertaining anecdotes about where he found them, and how he's played a role in inventions and even a marriage or two. He also provides an extensive list of Websites where he conducts research, offering an informative guide to making the most of the Internet.

    這本書很適合在準備托福的人閱讀.作者利用google或是wiki等收尋引擎或是線上資料庫幫助民眾解決疑慮,並整理這些疑慮以及他的解答內容集結成書.每個章節都一個問題(主題),緊接著就是作者的解答,他回答的內容很詳盡,還會提供網址,讓你自己去收尋更多的延伸內容.本書的內容及類型都很像托福的文章,準備托福者可以拿這本書來練練語感.

    Per chi ama il genere "domanda e risposta" e sa leggere l'inglese è un libro certamente divertente. Purtroppo in italiano non c'è la stessa abbondanza di titoli del mercato anglosassone. Ho sorvolato su alcuni quesiti in quanto riguardanti personaggi a me sconosciuti dello sport USA.
