    1. Probably the most accurate title I've seen yetThis book delivered - it was chock-full of quirky questions with scientific answers. Most of them are well-known musings (i.e. what came first, chicken or the egg?) or explaining the grain of truth behind certain wives tales (i.e you really get sick more often in cold weather)? I appreciated how each and every question was thoroughly researched - even if it was rediculous (i.e. Could the zombie apacolypse happen?).I do wish they would have gone into [...]

    2. Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI follow asapSCIENCE on YouTube. Their bite-sized science snippets, replete with colorful whiteboard drawings, are like a modern-day version of Bill Nye the Science Guy or The Magic School Bus. It's hard not to like a couple of guys who are setting out to erase common misconceptions and make science fun. Naturally, when I saw that they had a book coming out, I hit the apply button faster than you can say "Fahrenheit."Here, asapSCIENCE covers a wid [...]

    3. I received this book on Netgalley in exchange for a review.This is a cute little science book. If you have ever seen any of the AsapSCIENCE videos, then you know what to expect: short and sweet explanations with lots of drawings. It’s a very accessible book, it can be read by readers of (almost) any age, even if they know nothing about science.But I have a complaint: one of the questions the book tries to answer is what’s more painful – childbirth or getting kicked in the balls? The two ma [...]

    4. لديهم قناة في اليوتيوب تحمل نفس الإسم و نفس الفكرة و لكنها هنا محولة الى كتاب ممتع و مثير و يناسب الجميع. قاموا بالإجابة على أسئلة عامة في مواضيع مختلفة مثل: هل البرد يصيبنا بالمرض حقاً ؟ لماذا نشعر بأن الزمن أسرع عندما نكبر ؟ أين يذهب الضوء عندما تغلق الإضاءة ؟ و ما الذي سيحدث [...]

    5. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Are you wondering about weird scientific questions? Or are you a fan of the Youtube channel? This might just be the book for you.Most questions in the book are actually more or less biomedical questions, like the chemistry of love or what causes brain freeze. As a biomedical scientist, there was little new for me. By and large I think most explanations are okay, though of course sometimes oversimplified. This makes the book - I think - understandable [...]

    6. I just finished a great book about science and I think everybody should read it the chapters that I liked most are :does being cold make you sick?are silent farts more deadly?is cracking your joints bad for you?which is worse childbirth or being kicked in the balls?does shaving make your hair grow thicker?can sneezing pop your eyeballs out?which came first the chicken or the egg?is there a hiccup cure?why are men so hairy?could a zombie apocalypse happen?Selfie sciencethe science of bad breath, [...]

    7. I listened to this on my commute and found it informative, interesting and pleasant. This is a great book for science newbies even if you're not subscribed to the AsapSCIENCE YouTube channel.

    8. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.See here for entire review.Just like in their YouTube channel, the guys of AsapSCIENCE educate their viewers/readers about science in an entertaining way. In their book they give answers to some often-wondered mysteries like "What came first: the chicken or the egg?" or "What would happen if you stopped feeling?" or "Does giving birth or being kicked in the nuts hurt more?"I imagine that advanced students of science may no [...]

    9. 5StuffStarsI seriously requested this book and had to wait three months for approval!!! Why would I do that!! I should have just bought it immediately!!!! I requested this book and the book stuff you should know about stuff from netgalley and my only complaint is the media type its given on. It took forever to load each page no matter how I downloaded it. The drawings are so simple yet effective in this one. The table of contents is literally something ive never seen before its little blocks wit [...]

    10. Personal Response It is educational and funny. The whole book was fascinating about life of the human being. I liked it because it was about facts that are proven to be true. And the facts are about life and what goes on in the human body.PlotIt is about facts on the human being. There's facts about What if we never slept again, why do we get hangovers. Which came first the chicken or the egg?. Is binge watching tv bad for you? for the which came first the chicken or the egg the egg came first b [...]

    11. My ThoughtsI so admire anyone who can make science fun and these two authors have done exactly that. Never dry, filled with delightfully silly drawings and answers to some of life’s truly important questions such as “Can Sneezing Pop Your Eyeballs Out”(I never thought of this one) or “Are Silent Farts More Deadly”(I’ve often wondered about the SBD phenomenon). The chapter titles made me laugh, but then the authors go on to outline in very down-to earth terms the scientific explanatio [...]

    12. A fun book that had me chuckling as much to the goofy illustrations as some of the written content. Serious science can be, well serious and not entertaining reading often. This book switches gears and takes on some of the imponderables of everyday life such as are silent farts more deadly. Practical things such as this that pack the book make in a light and entertaining read and had me zipping through the pages to get on to the next enlightening topic.

    13. Educational and fun, Great and quirky book! I ordered this because I'm a huge fan of the ASAP Science Youtube channel and I was not disappointed by the quality of the book or the content within it. It's full of amazing facts and answers that will satisfy those who are curious about anything science.I love this book as much as I love their YouTube channel of the videos they do introducing science in a humorous way.

    14. Mourning breath, swear words, and wives tales oh my.I found this book to be highly entertaining. The authors did a fanatic job of explaining the science behind all those questions you wanted answers to with out getting to technical or boggy down the book with to much detail.In my opinion you don't have to know much about science to understand the authors explanation and at times the explanations were down right funny at times.

    15. It was a fast, easy read. I liked it a lot, but I would have preferred if they had dealt with more topics that they didn't feature on their channel, since I may or may not have binge watched all of their videos. Also there were a few pages that bugged me because they had one huge doodle on it and only a tiny paragraph of text????But I'm just picky about these things. All in all, this is a great book that's a perfect gift to any science nerds out there.

    16. As a big fan of their YouTube channel, I was sure I was going to love this book, and I did. Simple as that. Not only were the illustrations fabulous, but there were questions in there that I was genuinely curious about. And plus now I have a bunch of random facts I can pester my friends and family with. Woo.

    17. I ABSOLUTLEY ADORED THIS BOOK!!! AsapSCIENCE has been my favorite YouTube channel ever since I have discovered them (a year ago)! Man their spirit and ingenuity is what makes them so fun to watch. Their book is so interesting and their answers are so satisfying. However, some parts of this may not be suitable for younger ages, but overall a wonderful and amazing experience!!

    18. This was an easy to read book that I could dip into as I had time. The authors provided explanations for a lot of “I wonder why?” questions, without using a lot of unfamiliar science terminology. It was an informative and humorous book, but sometimes the humor got a little silly or juvenile.Thank you to Scribner and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book.

    19. Science is awesome. But ASAP Science is even more awesome. With simple and comic art, the book, just like the video format, answers the common questions about common phenomena. Simple explanations and powerfully simple backgrounds make this a success story. I'd love to read more in the same series.I thank NetGalley for a reviewer's ecopy of this book.

    20. I took a chance and purchased this book on the weekend just because it had an eye-catching cover. I am sure people of all ages would find this book interesting. The explanations are accompanied by diagrams so people that struggle with science vocabulary need not be intimidated. I now know more about farts, boogers, and hiccups than I ever thought I wanted to know.

    21. AsapSCIENCEGo and watch AsapScience on Youtube because I love them, they do the most ridiculous as well as important videos to teach things in the simplest of ways.

    22. Informative, interesting and irreverent. A fun way to learn about things you've always wondered about.

    23. Science is fun. Books like this make it more fun. Careful though, not everything here is for delicate ears. There, that should entice you to have a look. Good.

    24. It’s a nice addition to every library. Sure, none of the content is new but I wouldn't believe you if you told me that you remember all the videos. I highly recommend it for curious but lazy readers, as well as for children of all ages. The truth is that this is a book for a specific audience and it comes with certain drawbacks, namely many unnecessary illustrations and a lack of depth. A bibliography would have been helpful and one of the chosen fonts annoyed me somewhat. However, these are m [...]

    25. As someone who's been watching ASAPScience videos for a few years now, I was a bit disappointed at this book. It's great in the sense that it is easy to understand and is formatted similarly to their videos; but at the same time, that was a huge downfall. I had already watched a lot of the videos that were transferred to this book so it was a bit repetitive If I hadn't been watching their videos, I think I would've enjoyed it more to get just some basic information on a lot of topics that emerge [...]

    26. MehThis book is basically the ASAP Science videos in book form like exactly. The videos are great so the book is fine I just wouldn't waste money on this book when you could just watch the YouTube videos and get the same information and pictures. If the money from sales was going to charity like the three Pottermore books which also contains information you could easily get online for free then I would say buy it and think of it as a decent reward for donating to charity or if you want to suppor [...]

    27. AsapSCIENCE: Answers to the World's Weirdest Questions, Most Persistent Rumors, and Unexplained Phenomena was a masterpiece. Thoughts weird questions like why does this happen? or what if this happened? I learned a lot of unique things like how to control dreams or what happens to the brain when some one is in love. This book was unlike any book I have ever read. I was formatted like an infographic and not like a real book.
