  • Description

    From the creator of the wildly popular webcomic xkcd, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask Millions of people visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe’s iconic webcomic. His stick-figure drawings about science, technology, language, and love have an enormous, dedicated following, as do his deeply researched answers to his fans’ strangest questions. The queries he receives range from merely odd to downright diabolical: • What if I took a swim in a spent-nuclear-fuel pool? • Could you build a jetpack using downward-firing machine guns? • What if a Richter 15 earthquake hit New York City? • Are fire tornadoes possible? His responses are masterpieces of clarity and wit, gleefully and accurately explaining everything from the relativistic effects of a baseball pitched at near the speed of light to the many horrible ways you could die while building a periodic table out of all the actual elements. The book features new and never-before-answered questions, along with the most popular answers from the xkcd website. What If? is an informative feast for xkcd fans and anyone who loves to ponder the hypothetical.

      It's called what if and it says hypothetical questions.... So why would you say it's un realistic?

      I was really excited when I bought this book, but the more I read into it and each chapter I read just got worse and worse. It just goes on and on talking about stupid questions that no one really cares about. Almost nothing in this book is doable, so why would anyone want to know the answers to things that can never be done. Big waste of time and money.

      This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I can truly say that it is one of my favorite books ever. It is a scientific book that knows how to have fun with its subject matter.
