About the Author

Randall Munroe  is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller What If?, the science question-and-answer blog What If, and the popular webcomic xkcd.  A former NASA roboticist, he left the agency in 2006 to draw comics on the Internet full-time, supporting himself through the sale of xkcd t-shirts, prints, posters, and books. He likes candlelight dinners and long walks on the beach. Very long walks. Lots of people say they like long walks on the beach, but then they get out on the beach and after just an hour or two, they say they’re getting tired. Bring a tent. He lives in Massachusetts.

Fairly interesting read but very hard to read in ebook format. Would not recommend it

Fantastic book! Perfect for early readers, and the grown-ups will love it too. Bought it for my nephew, now I want my own copy.

My husband loves this book! He showed it to friends who also loved it so he has ordered five more copies to give away. The only other reviewer so far did not comment on the actual book which is really terrific.If you are interested in how things work, this is the book for you.
