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 hungover? 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 audiobook, 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 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.

The best and the narrators speak really clear it's the best book and would recommend it to other people would are interested in this type of science.
A fun way to bring questions you might have thought throughout the day in a simple explanation that makes you understand it way better. I've read this 3 times and still am interested in it and use the info in groups and gatherings!
Answers questions that we probably all have thought of at one time or another. Like if your food it;s the floor does the 5 second rule really apply.Silent but deadly ....do I have to explain. What's with bad breath. Gross little things like this peppered throughout the book.
The 5 second rule will probably stand out the most. Knowledge is power so I will change the way I'e played this ruke.

Good book of fun facts. But really short. I wish it would have been at least a few hours long.
The information, just like in there videos, was presented clearly and in a fun way. There is obviously overlap between their videos and the book, but I didn't mind hearing all of the interesting information again.
The topics and content was great just like on their YouTube channel. However, since it is written and performed in the same style, the narration ends up being a bit too fast for an audio book. Without the normal visual cues, it requires more concentration to really consume the content. It would have been much more enjoyable and relaxing if they slowed down and paced themselves better for the audio book.
I listened to this book for two consecutive days while working and commuting, keeping it more as an interesting background rather than actively listening to it.
Fact is, I am a fan of the YouTube channel and I bought it being actually aware of it being just a narration of the videos and most probably not presenting any new content.
And so it was.
My advice is: if you are new to ASAPScience and didn't know that this great guys do this every week, please listen to this.
If you, like me, think that Greg and Mitchell are great and deserve recognition for their work also outside of YouTube, buy it (then you are free not to listen to it or read it).
If you saw the videos and for some strange reason don't like them, stay away.
sure if you watch their channel you know most of thr facts already but still a wonderful book wonderful audiobook and awesome facts. plus wonderful way to support the channel asapscience
