Всички науки са се развили благодарение на смайващи открития!

Болестите са опасен и коварен враг, но ако не ти липсва смелост и имаш здрав стомах, превърни се в неуморим изследовател и открий:

Има ли микроби на Марс

Колко вируса съдържа една кихавица

Страшни ли са маларийните плазмодии

Защо смъртоносната холера оцветява кожата ти в синьо

Макар и настръхнал от ужас, готов ли си д

As a child I loved both history and science, so as you can imagine I loved both the Horrible Histories books and the Horrible Science books.

Whilst I did enjoy the Horrible Science books, I never read quite as many as I did the Horrible Histories books. For me, even as a child, the Horrible Science books seemed somewhat second rate to the Horrible Histories books.

Don’t get me wrong, they’re good books. They make learning fun in the same way as their history counterparts, there simply seems to be

I was drawn to this book by a magazine I found at home. It was from the Horrible Science as well and after a quick browse I wanted to read one of the books for the non-fiction requirement for school. 'What other book series is funny and informative?' I asked myself. I found this book in the library and I began to read at once. I loved it, it made me laugh, squirm and feel terrified all at the same time.
If your kids say if they want to be a doctor one day, try giving them this book!
As a medico, this book is very interesting. Basic concepts about sickness, caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Children can learn more about typhoid fever, diarrhea, measles, etc in easy and fun way!
Very very recommended!!

It was easy to understand, fun and interesting and probably the most interesting non-fiction book series ever. I read this book when I was nine (you can guess my age now :) ) and could understand most of what the author was trying to say. The book included mini quizzes which helped me recapped what I was supposed to learn. These books probably taught me more than what school taught me! The illustrations were great (it is easy to understand and very 'child-friendly' and even an adult could enjoy ...more

In my mind, this was better than the other Horrible Science books. My mother bought the whole series of horrible science books for my younger brother, but I ended up reading them all anyways. This is a book packed with humor and facts, you will not forget most of what is in it. You may not be able to recall it, but if someone starts talking about it then you will be sure to be dragged into the conversation.

This was a really great book. I definitely learned a lot from it. There was lots of good info, and there was a lot a cartoons. It was a good easy read. You should definitely read the other ones in the series. I would recommend this book to those of you out there who like good info but in a really fun, cool way.... with.... with.... with..... Pictures!!!

It's a grave situation, this book!! LOL hahahaha........ So let's get to the point. This book is great!! It teaches you about things that you didn't even know about diseases and it is not boring like some books that go on and on about stuff. I don't know how Nick manages to make these books educational and funny but I love them

I think this book was very interesting. It helped me understand how diseases worked and the different kinds of them. It is a good book to learn in a fun way. It had facts I didn't know about and fun facts. This book can show young kids how fun and interesting science is.

Velmi chytlavá knížka, zatím se mi líbila ze všech "Děsivých věd/dějin" nejvíce. Většinou mě tyto knížky baví, ale potřebuji s nimi číst paralelně nějakou druhou knížku, něco na oživení, což jsem v tomto případě nemusela (ani nechtěla) a přečetla raz dva.

I like this book because I want to study diseases. I especially want to study kidney failure and the kidney (because I don't know much about it). I also want to study the structure of a cell.
