Book Review: AsapScience

asapscienceASAP Science contains the answers to the world’s weirdest questions, most persistent rumors and unexplained phenomena. The book answers a lot of questions that I’ve heard before like – does shaving make your hair grow thicker? Are silent farts more deadly? Is Binge watching TV bad for you? (Maybe I haven’t heard that one but I wonder that one since I do it!), Is there a hiccup cure?, Why do we get Pins and Needles?, Why does time feel faster as we age?, Should you use the snooze button? and many, many, more.

The book presents these scientific mysteries in fun and easy to understand ways – and there are even drawings and pictures throughout to help illustrate the points! I found it to teach me a lot and be a lot of fun to read in the process as well. If you’re interested in science or the weird things that we deal with with our body, sex, farting, etc. Definitely check this book out.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

From the creators of the wildly popular and seriously scientific YouTube channel, AsapSCIENCE, comes entertaining, irreverent, and totally accessible answers to the questions you never got to ask in science class.

Why do we get hung over? What would happen if you stopped sleeping? Is binge-watching TV actually bad for you? Why should I take a power nap? In their first-ever book, Mitchell Moffit and Greg Brown, the geniuses behind YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE, explain the true science of how things work in their trademark hilarious and fascinating fashion.

Applying the fun, illustrated format of their addictive videos to topics ranging from brain freeze to hiccups to the science of the snooze button, AsapSCIENCE takes the underpinnings of biology, chemistry, physics, and other hard sciences and applies them to everyday life through quirky and relatable examples that will appeal to both science nerds and those who didn’t ace chemistry. This is the science that people actually want to learn, shared in a friendly, engaging style. And in the spirit of science, no subject is taboo. Amid the humor is great information and cocktail conversation fodder, all thoughtfully presented. Whether you’re a total newbie or the next Albert Einstein, this guide is sure to educate and entertain…ASAP.
