Description
The instant New York Times bestselling book of entertaining, irreverent, and totally accessible illustrated answers to the scientific "questions you had no idea were bugging you all your life" ( Fast Company ), from the creators of the wildly popular YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE. 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 the 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 exactly ace chemistry. This is the science that people actually want to learn, shared in a friendly, engaging style. "Science is big fun. The ASAP guys get that, and they'll show you--they'll even draw you a diagram" (Bill Nye, "The Science Guy"). And 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.
