about

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Around Christmas, I started watching their Youtube videos because I really love anything related to the education field, (basically getting more knowledge) so I purchased this book. The drawings in the book are super lovely. The way they wrote the content in the book is exactly the same way they would present the content in a video which I found really nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable!! I bought this in February and it arrived in the beginning of March. It is amazing how they explain everything with science and drawings but, at the same time, you don't feel bored. It is so fun to read and learn. The way that they divided the categories makes it easier to find a question and just read that one. I highly recommend this book for every age group.
