Human behaviour made fun

You Just Can't Help It! Your Guide to the Wild and Wacky World of Human Behavior
by Jeff Szpirglas

Szpirglas provides an amusing look at human behaviour: how we sense the world around us, how our emotions affect the way we act, how we communicate (using words and gestures), and how we interact with others. The behaviours mentioned aren't really wacky, since they're mainly automatic (and thus quite normal). But the book's design is definitely wacky (in a good way), with lots of pictures, colours, fonts, and text boxes. Kids will enjoy the scientific experiments, one of which is appealingly disgusting (it involves smelly diapers).
