Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings delves into the warnings our parents used to give us:

"It's OK, even Einstein flunked math." (False--he did very well in math.)

"Wear your retainer, or your teeth will get crooked again." (Mostly true)

For each saying, the author digs into why it's true or false. I like the fact that some things are listed as "probably true," "mostly true," or "mostly false." He isn't binary, black-or-white about it.
