Gaap-sm.jpgWolter Seuntjens, the world’s best-known and perhaps most philosophically-dedicated scholar on yawning, has a new book out. It’s called Gaap! The title, like the book, is in Dutch. An interview with the author, on the Dutch television program De Wereld Draait Door, is also in Dutch. Click here to see and hear it (the interview begins about 1/3 of the way in).

Dr. Seuntjens published some of his research in the Annals of Improbable Research. He has also shared some of his yawningly-provocative findings with the public during Improbable Research tours in the UK and in The Netherlands.
