What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions, by Randall Munroe (author), Wil Wheaton (narrator)

Blackstone Audio, September 2014

Randall Munroe is perhaps best known as the creator of the XKCD webcomic, and there's a good reason for that. With simple stick figures he gives us smart, funny, informative, perspective-altering, and did I mention funny?, explanation and commentary on science, math, life, romance, sarcasm, and language. But at that website he gets lots of questions, and What If? grew out of those questions.

He works hard to get the answers right. Making them funny apparently comes naturally. This is the audiobook version, and Wil Wheaton is the perfect reader for it. If you have asthma issues as I do, think carefully about whether it's wise to listen to it while driving!

This is delightful, funny, and informative. Highly recommended.

I bought this audiobook.
