HORRIBLE SCIENCE

This book was first published in the UK in 2001. It is 144 pages long with almost all of them having a strange picture on them.

In this book energy is compared to a monster, called the 'energy monster', the energy monster goes every where helping people and destroying things!
There are a lot of letters written in this book (most of them made up but still true). This book explains things very simply, and when there is a big word like `thermodynamics' after it there will be in brackets (that's ther-mo-dy-nam-ics) so if you don't know how to say it then your problem is solved!

My highlights of this book are the question and answer sections. for example on pg 45 there are questions about 'could you be a surgeon?' and on pg 107-110 there are questions ' the seven super energy quiz'.

The thing I like about this book is that there are mini experiments explained inside that you can try out. Also because it's a horrible science book all the horrible details are included!

I also like their little journals by Harvey Tucker the biggest and laziest Australian journalist. I like the way the book teaches you things without realizing it.

I recommend this book to people who don't really enjoy reading but like science!

'If you think you can stomach the `sick' side of Science, then read on as we uncover the burning issues behind Energy.

With fantastic fact files, crazy cartoons and curious quizzes.

144 pages, split over 12 chapters:

Introduction
The ultimate power
Laying down the laws
Horrible heat
The dead freezing chapter
Killer cold
Horribly powerful fuel
The power to move you
Hot, sweaty body bits
Killer heat
Fearsome fiery furnaces
A power for good?

written in a variety of fonts in the usual Nick Arnold entertaining style.

Black and white illustrations throughout, as well as 'Bet you never knew' fact-boxes, e.g.:

'At the World Sauna Championships, in Finland, people sit in a hot sauna room at temperatures up to 43 degree C (110 F) - this is as hot as some deserts!

The aim is to sweat dirt from the skin but everyone wears swimming costumes because the organisers say it would be rude if they didn't!'

'Science has never been so horrible!'

I brought this book way back in 2001 and I must say it's very well written. Like all Arnold's books they're very fun to read. This is because he mixed humour into it. This helps you to remember. I love these books and I still collect them!
