Fake Science 101: A Less-Than-Factual Guide to Our Amazing World by Phil Edwards

The universe is like a really big world filled with really difficult questions and lots of comets. Fake Science 101 is here to tackle those questions that are too tough to really answer. Like why is the sky blue? Where did the dinosaurs go? And what's with Einstein's hair?

If you love Fake Science on the World Wide Web, you will love it even more on paper.* This cutting-edge volume shares the freshest discoveries to date made by the Fake Science lab—and completely ignores the sneers from the scientific community over its lack of research. Fake Science 101 is your go-to textbook for when the facts are just too confusing.

*Unless you are a tree.

Science is better fake. Awesome book and surprisingly big. This is way more than the bathroom book I thought it would be. Plusses: chapters on space and chemistry. Minuses: not enough dinosaurs (weird since the blog has a bunch). Awesome book though, and definitely worth the money. SCIENCE!

Imaging if the Daily Show suddenly only covered science. You'd have Fake Science 101. Covering Astronomy, Biology, Chem, Earth, Physics, history, and how to be a scientist, this is a funny book that gives you a lot for your buck. I was amazed at the density—jokes are hidden in foot notes, quizzes, and even the pictures. A lot of care went into this, which makes sense since it was made by a lab. A great book for when the facts are too confusing. (I was a fan of the site and had pre-ordered, but you don't have to be to get the book).

This cute book is a good back to school gift and even smells like a textbook. I am getting it for my nephew as well, now that I've bought mine. It's the kind of book you can have in front of you while you're listening to the radio or something and just spend a few hours geeking out. Good read. This and I Am America (And So Can YOU!) are my go to reads now.
