Of Course I'm for Monogamy: I'm Also for Everlasting Peace and an End to Taxes

Marilyn vos Savant, Author St. Martin's Press $21.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-312-14693-1
Vos Savant, who writes the ""Ask Marilyn"" Q&A column in Parade magazine, here tackles subjects running the gamut from relationships to finances to science. Every chapter is arranged in the Q&A format, with questions posed by her readers. They range from the whimsical: ""How do you know when you're middle-aged?"" (Answer: ""You know you're middle-aged when you get up in the morning and hear the `snap, crackle, and pop' before you get to the breakfast table""); to the trivial: ""How many people were alive at the time of Jesus Christ?"" (Answer: ""About 250 million people""); to the arcane: ""Does a baseball thrown by a pitcher really curve?"" (Answer: ""Yes""). Although there are a lot of questions of the ""Who's buried in Grant's Tomb?"" variety, vos Savant (I've Forgotten Everything I Learned in School!) does some good work in her chapter on economics, tackling such complex matters as the national deficit. A book that the 81 million readers of Parade will look forward to. (Sept.)
