520    "Two crackerjack science journalists from NPR look at why 
       some things (and some people!) drive us crazy. It happens 
       everywhere--offices, schools, even your own backyard. Plus,
       seemingly anything can trigger it cell phones, sirens, bad
       music, constant distractions, your boss, or even your 
       spouse. We all know certain things get under our skin. Can
       science explain why? Palca and Lichtman take you on a 
       scientific quest through psychology, evolutionary biology,
       anthropology, and other disciplines to uncover the truth 
       about being annoyed. What is the recipe for annoyance? For
       starters, it should be temporary, unpleasant, and 
       unpredictable, like a boring meeting or mosquito bites. 
       Gives fascinating, surprising explanations for why people 
       react the way they do to everything from chili peppers to 
       fingernails on a blackboard. Explains why irrational 
       behavior (like tearing your hair out in traffic) is 
       connected to worthwhile behavior (like staying on task) 
       Includes tips for identifying your own irritating 
       habits.... The insights are fascinating, the exploration 
       is fun, and the knowledge you gain, if you act like you 
       know everything, can be really annoying."--|cProvided by

       annoying spouses, car alarms, fingernails on a chalkboard,
       coworkers, missed planes, bad dreams, dropped calls, bed 
       bugs, even the sounds coming out of everyone else's iPod--
       while still being humorous, surprising, and helpful"--
