About the Author

Randall Munroe is the creator of the webcomic xkcd and bestselling author of What If?, Thing Explainer and xkcd: Volume 0. Randall was born in Easton, Pennsylvania, and grew up outside Richmond, Virginia. After studying physics at Christopher Newport University, he got a job building robots at NASA Langley Research Center. In 2006 he left NASA to draw comics on the internet full time, and has since been nominated for a Hugo Award three times. The International Astronomical Union recently named an asteroid after him: asteroid 4942 Munroe is big enough to cause mass extinction if it ever hits a planet like Earth.

Reviews

Munroe is the perfect guy to take on a project like this... a wonderful guide for curious minds - BILL GATESRidiculous, delightful and, damn it, educational - Sunday Times (Culture)A pure delight, a salty-sweet mixture of hard science and bonkers whimsy - Boing BoingExtremely accurate and often amusing answers to everyday issues - Daily MailConsistently fascinating and entertaining - Wall Street JournalThe creator of the popular, extremely excellent webcomic xkcd cleverly illustrates a guide of complicated solutions to simple tasks as common as digging a hole - USA Today[How To] tackles problems from the mundane-such as how to move to a new house-to those that may trouble a mad scientist building her first lava moat. The solutions are often hilariously, and purposefully, absurd. Embedded in these solutions, however, is solid scientific, engineering, and experimental understanding . . . [for] anyone who appreciates science-based solutions to life's problems - Science Magazine
