    Description
    From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd.com, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask. Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions: How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living? How many humans would a T Rex rampaging through New York need to eat a day? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations and consults nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion.

    Awesome Book

    The book is a must for all XKCD fans. There is a free online version but this one is a good to keep hardcopy. Nice illustrations make the book more interesting. I bought during Big Billion Sale and got a very low price copy. Thanks Flipkart

    Very enjoyable read

    I've been following the what-if blog for quite some time, and wanted to buy this book as soon as it came out. It did not disappoint. 51% of the articles are new, and there are other additions inside as well, which kept me laughing for a long time. Definitely worth buying.

    But of course you must rush out and buy it now!

    I have not read such a beautifully engaging book on science for ever so long. The sense of humor is exactly right, the science is just so and the format of the book borders on the look and feel of an illustrated novel. I will re-read this book a million times.

    Pure genius

    Lots of really amazing weird questions, with really awesome answers. More than the ultimate answers themselves, its the nature of figuring out seemingly impossible quantities that blows the mind away. A must read for anyone who has a liking for science.
