I just submitted  What Einstein Told His Barber by Robert L. Wolke.
Should be an easy validation. Spelled checked, page breaks and numbers.


What makes ice cubes cloudy? How do shark attacks make airplanes safer? Can a 
person traveling in a car at the speed of sound still hear the radio? Moreover, 
would they want to...?

Do you often find yourself pondering life's little conundrums? Have you ever 
wondered why the ocean is blue? Or why birds don't get electrocuted when 
perching on high-voltage power lines? Robert L. Wolke, professor emeritus of 
chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh and acclaimed author of What Einstein 
Didn't Know, understands the need to...well, understand. Now he provides more 
amusing explanations of such everyday phenomena as gravity (If you're in a 
falling elevator, will jumping at the last instant save your life?) and 
acoustics (Why does a whip make such a loud cracking noise?), along with 
amazing facts, belly-up-to-the-bar bets, and mind-blowing reality bites all 
with his trademark wit and wisdom.

If you shoot a bullet into the air, can it kill somebody when it comes down? 

You can find out about all this and more in an astonishing compendium of the 
proverbial mind-boggling mysteries of the physical world we inhabit.

Arranged in a question-and-answer format and grouped by subject for browsing 
ease, WHAT EINSTEIN TOLD HIS BARBER is for anyone who ever pondered such things 
as why colors fade in sunlight, what happens to the rubber from worn-out tires, 
what makes red-hot objects glow red, and other scientific curiosities. Perfect 
for fans of Newton's Apple, Jeopardy!, and The Discovery Channel, WHAT EINSTEIN 
TOLD HIS BARBER also includes a glossary of important scientific buzz words and 
a comprehensive index.

If I can help the valadator email me at Jim@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
