Useless—and fascinating—information from the man with “the reputation as the science teacher with 1,000 different stories to excite young minds” (ABC News).
Steve Silverman was looking for a way to add some spice to his high school lectures when he realized that weird and bizarre true-life stories would capture his students’ attention. In fact, they worked so well that the science teacher then began posting his discoveries to his own Web site, which he dubbed Useless Information. Well-researched and clearly sourced, Silverman’s unusual tidbits have gained a wide following.
In Einstein’s Refrigerator, Silverman collects more than thirty of the most fascinating stories he has gathered—tales of forgotten genius, great blunders, and incredible feats of survival, as well as answers to puzzling questions.
Einstein’s Refrigerator is a remarkable book with spellbinding stories. Whatever happened to the refrigerator Einstein helped invent? While it never became a commercial success, its underlying concepts became the basis for cooling nuclear breeder reactors.
