Hold the Apocalypse - Pass Me a Scientist Please by Bob Lorentson looks at us as “Modern Humans” and shows us what our world has become. But don’t take it too seriously. Even though the subject may be serious, Bob, the environmental scientist, helps us see the funny side of our development and the animals with whom we share our doomed planet. Through 50 essays and poems, Bob gives us food for thought by showing us the differences between men and women and animals. In some cases, there is little or no difference. Included in the book are subjects that no person would ever think could be written about – but where there’s a will, there’s a way – and now we finally know the answers to all the questions that nobody ever thought of asking.

Hold the Apocalypse - Pass Me a Scientist Please is best read when you have nothing else planned for the day. If you have anything else to attend to, you can be guaranteed that it won’t get done once you start reading Bob’s hilarious tales, essays, poems, and theories. Also, make sure you are alone because otherwise you will annoy everyone around you with bouts of laughter and “listen to this” while you read passages from the book to them. If you are looking for a gift for anybody, look no further; you just found the perfect book. There is even a section on reducing stress, but you won’t need any additional stress release methods after reading this. Hold the Apocalypse - Pass Me a Scientist Please will certainly take your mind for a walk.
