But what recognition is there for the brave scientific mind who attempted to feed Prozac to clams for sexual purposes?

Where are the gongs for the genius who trained pigeons to discriminate between the paintings of Picasso and those of Monet? Are there no plaudits for the inventor of Under-Ease, the charcoal-filled underwear that removes bad-smelling gases before they can escape?Based on the august surroundings of Harvard University, the Ig Nobel Prizes have changed all that, bestowing their awards on the individuals whose achievements cannot or should not be reproduced. And here from humour magazine the Annals of Improbable Research, comes the story behind these awards - the research, the award winners themselves and their sometimes ungracious responses.Within these pages discover the wonders of PawSense- the groundbreaking computer software program capable of instantly informing you when a cat is walking across your keyboard.

Meet the man behind the landmark study of Murphys Law who has found concrete evidence which proves that toast more often falls butter side down. And find all you could ever want to know about The Collapse of Toilets in Glasgow and the optimal way to dunk a biscuit.Bizarre, improbable and all for real - Ig Nobel Prizes is a delightfully irrelevant look at the weirdest scientific research in the world.
