For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally bad 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.Bestselling author and cartoonist Randall Munroe explains how to predict the weather by analyzing the pixels of your Facebook photos. He teaches you how to tell if you're a baby boomer or a millennial by measuring the radioactivity of your teeth. He offers tips for taking a selfie with a telescope, crossing a river by boiling it, and getting to your appointments on time by destroying the moon. And if you want to get rid of this book once you're done with it, he walks you through your options for proper disposal, including dissolving it in the ocean, converting it to a vapour, using tectonic plates to subduct it into the Earth's mantle, or launching it into the sun.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?, he 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.… (mere)

Some section were slower than others, some were more ridiculous than others, but I think the quote that best describes this book is, "I really love that we can ask physics ridiculous questions... and physics has to answer us." ( )

One of the wonderful things about this book is that each chapter stands fully on its own. So you can read in order or just pick based on the topic that interests you most at a given moment.

But, the best things about the book are it’s humor and bringing science to a level non-scientists can not just understand but also find themselves pulled into. My biggest note to anyone who hasn’t read it yet: read the footnotes. There are true gems in them. ( )

Have you ever wondered if you could open bottles using nuclear bombs because regular bottle openers are boring? Or how much cheese it would take to contain a pool because who needs concrete? No? Never fear! Randall Munroe has you covered in his book How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-world Problems. The title really says it all on this one.

It's an entertaining and silly read. Scenarios in the book include:

• How to jump really high
• How to land a plane
• How to dig a hole
• How to get rid of a book (the horror!)

You get the idea. Problems that don't really need solving but if you did want a highly impractical solution, Randall Munroe is your man! He also provides the mundane, boring solutions to each problem first for comparison.

I listened to the the audio book narrated by Wil Wheaton. He gives a fantastic delivery as always with spot on comedic timing.

As enjoyable as this was to listen to, turns out I preferred the bonkers scenarios in What If much more. Either way, I hope Munroe keeps writing these types of science books. Science can be fun. Wish it was taught this way in school when I was growing up. ( )

Una cosa è certa. Leggendo i libri di Munroe, a parte guardare i disegnini, uno si chiede di che cosa si faccia. Anche in questo caso le cose che propone sono completamente pazze, ma le sue spiegazioni sono perfettamente corrette, ancorché inapplicabili. Potremmo dire che il libro è un modo per insegnare un po' di fisica senza che ce ne rendiamo conto; ma forse è meglio dire che è un modo per capire quali cose sono impossibili all'atto pratico, e soprattutto quali sono i processi mentali di un fisico nel risolvere un problema - cosa completamente diversa dai processi mentali di un matematico quale io sono, per esempio. Stavolta poi xkcd è anche riuscito a coinvolgere altra gente, come per esempio Serena Williams per colpire un drone in volo... Come sempre, una lettura godibilissima. ( )
