It is human nature to be curious about things that scare us--that’s why we love scary movies and true crime podcasts. But what about our deepest, most specific phobias? Spiders, Clowns and Great Mole Rats presents a fascinating, friendly and even funny look at 160 fears, from the irrational to the truly terrifying.
This book will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about fears and phobias like blennophobia (fear of slime), globophobia (fear of balloons), phasmophobia (fear of ghosts), taphophobia (fear of being buried alive), and over 150 more!
Andrew Thompson practices law but his obsession with finding out the truth about aspects of the world that we take for granted has led him to accumulate a vast body of knowledge that he has at last distilled into book form.
