The Nobel Prize brings well-deserved recognition to the world’s greatest accomplishments. But for some who are not lucky enough to become Nobel laureates comes the Ig Nobel Prize, which honors the most eccentrically innovative minds and their unique endeavors. Born from the annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony at Harvard University, The Man Who Tried to Clone Himself is a fresh collection of the unbelievable-but-true achievements that are awarded this prestigious honor, including:
* The scientists who discovered that chickens prefer beautiful humans
* The entire nation of Liechtenstein, which rents itself out for weddings, bar mitzvahs, or other gatherings
* The Norwegian research team that documented the impact of wearing wet underwear in the cold
Demonstrating the incredible lengths people will go in the pursuit of knowledge, The Man Who Tried to Clone Himself is perfect for anyone who wants to laugh and then think.
