We know that The Question Is "Why?" is both entertaining and instructive.

We also know how valuable any reader's time is—not to mention the money that goes into each book purchase.

So why not try a bit of the book before you buy it? We're delighted to make available here for free downloading two brief excerpts.

The first is a prefatory piece (pdf) in Stan's own voice.

The second, an introduction by Eric Steven Zimmer, will give you a solid overview (pdf) of what you might expect in all the pages to come.

We hope that you will enjoy these complimentary samples, and we thank you for the taking the time to explore The Question Is "Why?"
