Slithering snakes, creepy crawlies, harrowing heights-everybody is afraid of something!

Phobiapedia is an encyclopedia of all the things we fear the most, from more common fears like spiders (Arachnophobia), heights (Acrophobia), and confined spaces (Claustrophobia), to the strange and unusual, like dust (Koniophobia) and the color yellow (Xanthophobia). From their fascinating names to their fearsome effects, Phobiapedia explores all aspects of the things that make us shiver and scream. You'll learn what makes us fear them and why sometimes it's not such a bad idea to be scared. Packed with amazing images and filled with facts and figures, here at your fingertips is the truth behind the scariest things on the planet.

Joel Levy is a writer and journalist specializing in science and history. He is the author of over a dozen books, including The Little Book of Conspiracies and Scientific Feuds: From Galileo to the Human Genome Project. This is his first book for children.
