Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (p. [255]-256).
Summary, etc.: New York Times editor Wendell Jamieson's son, Dean, has always had a penchant for odd questions. "Dad," he asked, apropos of nothing, "what would hurt more--getting run over by a car, or getting stung by a jellyfish?" "Dad, why do policemen like donuts?" "What's it feel like to get stabbed?" "Does Mona Lisa wear shoes?" Dad, a newspaperman, decided to seek out answers--and got swept up in the hunt. He spoke to movie directors and ship captains and brain surgeons and stabbing victims and lottery winners and museum curators and politicians and judges and compulsive shoppers and mothers-in-law and magicians. But what began as a lark quickly grew into something larger. Blending a father-son journey with the surprising, sometimes hilarious questions and answers it spawned, this book offers a heartwarming exploration of that childlike curiosity that lives within us all.--From publisher description.
