Synopsis [Warning: Spoiler]: This is a set of scientific answer to “absurd hypothetical questions”, like for instance “How high a human can through something?”.

Personal Review: There is 3 reasons why I enjoy this book quite a lot. The first one, because it is a present from a very good friend for my birthday. Although the questions are completely absurd in some cases, the answers are scientifically correct, and I like it. The last reason is that Randall Munroe is the creator of xkcd comic.


This book is totally engaging. You read one answer, and if you read the next question… they you are done, you need to red next answer and so on.

The best thing is that it keeps using the same jokes he developed in the xkcd comic, and even using completely accurate answers, they can be understood by everybody with minimum physics knowledge.
