How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Problems

Randall Patrick Munroe is an American cartoonist, author, scientific theorist, and creator of the webcomic xkcd - primarily a stick figure comic with themes in computer science, technology, mathematics, science, philosophy, language, pop culture, romance, and physics. The popularity of xkcd among science fiction fans resulted in Munroe being nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Fan Artist in 2011 and 2012. In 2014 he won the Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story. In 2014 Munroe published a book entitled What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions. His book published in 2015, Thing Explainer, explains concepts using only the thousand most common English words.

"How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems" contains entirely original, never-before-seen material and is chock full of deeply researched, entertaining, and often alarming scientific thought experiments. It is perhaps the world's most amusing and useless self-help guide.
