“From hiccup cures to the 5 second rule, this book put a bemused smile on my face and answered the oddball questions of life. An irreverent stroll through the arcane and taboo, guided by the science behind it.” (Chris Hadfield, author of "An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth" and "You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes")
"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,” CEO, The Planetary Society and author of "Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation")
"From concise examinations of tiny topics like the science of love and aging, to answers to questions you actually care about--should you use the snooze button?--this book has something for everyone who is curious about the world around them. (That is to say: everyone.) This is science at its most fun, accessible, and well-illustrated." (David Epstein, author of the New York Times bestseller "The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance")
"Entertaining...valuable...particularly for the young and curious." (Publishers Weekly)
“A fun read that strikes a fine balance between science and levity, offering delightful drawings relevant to the text. Each topic is presented with enough information to explain the science involved but not so much that the reader is swimming in terminology and detailed descriptions.” (Library Journal)
“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.” (Phil Plait a.k.a. The Bad Astronomer, author of "Bad Astronomy and Death from the Skies!")
"These guys answer the questions you had no idea were bugging you all your life." (Fast Company)

I will note that these are all natural aspects of life, and nothing objectively negative for a younger child to be exposed to. The terminology used in that presentation might be questioned (some may prefer formal terminology over informal), and the potential social ramifications of having a child educated in such matters could, sadly, be an issue, however. My wife and I are fine with it, but our niece's parents and grandparents have different opinions than we do on some things. Just something to think about.
Unrelated to the book itself: I got myself the Kindle version and yet it wasn't compatible with my eReader device (Kindle Paperwhite), so beware if you are getting the soft copy.
