Book of Thunks®: is not going fishing a hobby and other possibly impossible questions to stretch your brain and annoy your friends

A Thunk is a beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light. Following on from The Little Book of Thunks, the Thunks in this book cover most areas of human existence including truth, justice, reality, beliefs, the natural world, the human condition, art, beauty, existence, right and wrong, good and bad, life and death, war, religion, love and friendship. With some fantastic illustrations from Andrew Curran (author of The Little Book of Big Stuff About the Brain), examples include: ‘If you typed the word 'run' a thousand times would that be a short story?’ ‘Are skid marks art?’ and ‘Is a static caravan a caravan?’ A great gift book for possibly the most impossible person to buy for! The Book of Thunks will shake up your templates, rattle your thought routines and force you to think about things differently. So find a friend or family member, ask a Thunk, disagree with their answer (remember there are no right and wrong answers) and keep your brain working longer and better.

WARNING: A FEW OF THESE THUNKS ARE UNSUITABLE FOR USE WITH CHILDREN!
