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

Find in catalogThe author of xkcd.com addresses all the questions and more than you’ve ever thought to ask about all this wonderful and new science and technology around us. I would have loved my physics courses so much more if he had been our teacher, I may have actually learned something! He has a rare ability at making that initiate childlike curiosity come out again years later. Munroe is able to take us through numerous computer simulations and differential equations with apparent ease to answer amazing questions such as what would happen if the world stopped spinning? Or what would the robot apocalypse look like? I love this book and am going to recommend it to anyone and everyone who will listen.
