What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical QuestionsWhat If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This wasa fun, laugh-out-loud book that I cannot recommend enough. To the point that before I was 1/3 of the way through I messaged friends and said "You need to get this book and read it now".

The author, known for his webcomic xkcd asked his followers to ask absurd hypothetical questions and he actually did the math, research and science to find out the answers. I loved how, in one chapter, he used D&D stats to explain genetics... and for those like me who were/are RPG nerds... it made total sense.

You do not need to understand math or various areas of science to relate to this book and I encourage all to go read it as soon as possible.

AND BONUS: if you are an Amazon Prime member, this book is free for the kindle and kindle app.
