Book: Randall Monroe's "How To"

I've read other books by Randall Monroe and I read his cartoons almost daily.  Any nerd out there should be familiar with XKCD.  Monroe produces humor with a scientific slant that I enjoy and this book, "How To", does not disappoint.

The book is similar the the first one I've read, "What If?", in that each chapter posits a problem which Monroe then solves using science taking it to absurd, and often funny, limits.  In short it's a book full of solutions if you happen to not believe in the K.I.S.S. principle.

I enjoyed this book.  It was hard not to smile about some of the shenanigans explained in the book with scientific precision.

I gave this book four stars out of five on Goodreads.  Worth your time if you have a nerdy, science-based, sense of humor.
