What If?

Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions

Randall Munroe

Summary: What If is an instant favourite for me. Funny, full of interesting stuff.

Score: 100 / 100

What if Randall wrote a sequel? That would be great! Rigorous and entertaining at the same time. If you like xkcd, you will love this book. If you don’t like xkcd, you should. :)
