Overview

If you like math, science, and history, you're going to love How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems. Even if you don't like some of those subjects, you may learn a thing or two that will pique your interest. It's got a few fun, crazy, and scientific ways to solve scenarios you'd never want to be in.

If you're interested in self-improvement, Randall Monroe has a clear message: innovative ideas are important. If this type of thinking sounds strange to you, just remember it was the 'weird ideas' that brought us the airplane, computer, internet, and smartphone. A bit of abstract thinking can go a long way to improving our world.

"I don't like making fun of people for admitting they don't know something or never learned how to do something. Because if you do that, all it does is teach them not to tell you when they're learning something."
