Guesstimation: Solving the World's Problems on the Back of a Cocktail Napkin
Lawrence Weinstein & John A. Adam

"Guesstimation is a delightful book that, page after page, gleams with
insight into the measure of all things--from house pets to lottery tickets
and from the kitchen to the cosmos. Meanwhile, the authors cleverly teach
you some fundamental chemistry, physics, and biology, leaving you
enlightened and curiously comfortable with all that once seemed intractable
in the world."--Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist at the American Museum
of Natural History, author of Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic
Quandaries
