If you're a fan of math, science, space, computers, cartoons, ridiculous speculations, or any combination thereof, you'll love this book. Randall Munroe was a roboticist for NASA before becoming a full-time cartoonist and creator of the hugely popular webcomic xkcd. His latest book is liberally sprinkled with cartoons providing illustrations, examples, and commentary on his hilarious attempts to provide realistic answers to completely unrealistic questions. He does the research and we enjoy the results. Have you ever wondered what would happen if we drained the Earth's oceans and put all the water on Mars? Or put a submarine in orbit? How about gathering together a mole (unit of measurement) of moles (small furry critters) in one place? Or pitching a baseball at 90% the speed of light? What If? is the most entertaining — not to mention safest — way to satisfy your curiosity. Do not skip the footnotes.
