Randall Munroe presents "How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems"
For those who loved "What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions" and "Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words", bestselling author and web cartoonist Randall Munroe returns with a highly scientific and somewhat ridiculous new book: ""How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems".

For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally complex, excessive, and inadvisable that no one would ever try it. "How To" is a guide to the third kind of approach. It's full of highly impractical advice for everything from landing a plane to digging a hole. By exploring the most complicated ways to do simple tasks, Munroe doesn't just make things difficult for himself and his readers. As he did so brilliantly in "What If?", Munroe invites us to explore the most absurd reaches of the possible. Full of clever infographics and amusing illustrations, "How To" is a delightfully mind-bending way to better understand the science and technology underlying the things we do every day.
