About this item

The Pocket Encyclopedia of Aggravation is an A-to-Z illustrated compendium of everyday annoyances--from airline legroom, missing socks, and knuckle cracking to video buffering, telemarketers and internet trolls--complete with truly informative scientific explanations and wry commentary.This collection of 100 headaches, day-ruining events, moment destroying mishaps and infuriating everyday aggravations presents the fascinating facts behind the world's most frustrating situations.
Laura Lee's dry, humorous and scientific text explains why fingernails on the chalkboard make you cringe; why people drive slowly in the fast lane; why dripping faucets annoy women more than men; why the other line is always faster than the one you are on; and more. She also gives tips on how to deal with annoying things like brain freeze, hangnails, and that coworker that wears too much perfume. Amazingly, some things are less annoying when you know the facts.
Redesigned with enlightening diagrams and witty drawings, The Pocket Guide of Aggravation, finally answers the question, why is that so annoying?
