“Science is fun! But it’s even more so when Mitch and Greg get their hands on it. Gross, funny, interesting, weird: It’s all science, and it’s all cool.”


This is a book with pictures and captions that might make you think it’s for children, except that some of the information is most probably U/A.

Sperm count for example, or how to stop hiccups with the one finger treatment. But then again there’s a whole lot more that covers the weird and the wonderful – in fact answers a lot of the questions that you didn’t know you had.

Based on their YouTube channel, AsapSCIENCE, which has an audience of millions, the  explanations from these two scientists make for compelling reading. Quite obviously Moffit and Brown are young and quirky because that comes through in the way they’ve chosen to transform the book from their videos.

The first chapter on the chicken and the egg is their video rewritten and most of the book is about bodily functions. The illustrations replicate the whiteboard drawings that the young authors have made their trademark and apart from fans of the channel, the book is ideal for people who like their information delivered in short easily comprehensible bursts that are preferably funny.

Asap Science is in fact great toilet reading material no matter what your level of science.
