FOOD FOR THOUGHTS is just that... A collection of subjects that will wake your brain up and give it something to think about. This is not quite your "typical book". Written with a slight touch of humor, each chapter tackles a particular subject. It begins with the economy and health care, and the problems associated with both. It even offers some possible solutions to those problems.
Have you been shopping in a grocery store lately? The Author has, and is not too happy about what's on the shelves there these days.
And speaking of the gulf oil spill... If you think that was a disaster, wait till you hear what could be in the works in the wonderful world of physics research. What some scientists are planning to do with one of their latest "toys" shouldn't be done by any one, anywhere on this planet. But they're planning on doing it anyway.
The TV broadcasting industry has now gone digital. It's now "a better picture, and clearer sound". Or is that "a clearer picture, and better sound"? And it's now "the news you need, from the people you can trust". Oh, really! Well. according to the Author's TV, it's none of the above.
Seen any dinosaurs around, lately? Probably not. The Author gives a good reason why you don't.
Seen any UFO's lately? No? Well, you're not alone. But back in the late 40's and early 50's, they were showing up in the skies all around the world. The U.S. Air Force even formed a dedicated investigative unit, Project Blue Book, to investigate UFO sightings. They concluded that most of the sightings were "misinterpretations of natural phenomenon". Now-a-days, there are hardly ever any UFO sightings any more. The Author asks, have "natural phenomenon" been turned off, for the past 50 years or so? Can you do that?
And speaking of real aliens (not to be confused with the "illegal" ones who now seem to be everywhere in the U.S.), the Author speculates about why we haven't found any yet... Or why they haven't found us by now.
And then there's the little story about the flying squirrels...
And we won't even mention that problem in the middle east. But the book does.
All that, and more. So... If you're looking for a book that's different from all the rest... This just might be it.
And those strange little pictures at the end of each chapter aren't bad, either...
