Randall Munroe is . . .‘Nerd royalty’ Ben Goldacre

‘Totally brilliant’ Tim Harford
‘Laugh-out-loud funny’ Bill Gates
‘Wonderful’ Neil Gaiman


The world’s most entertaining and useless self-help guide, from the brilliant mind behind the wildly popular webcomic xkcd and the million-selling What If? and Thing Explainer

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.

‘How strange science can fix everyday problems’ New Scientist

‘A brilliant book: clamber in for a wild ride’ Nature

An enjoyable treat for fans of logic puzzles, brain hacking, kaizen, mad science, and other forms of mental stimulation
Kirkus Reviews

Consistently fascinating and entertaining
Wall Street Journal

Required reading across the world
New York Times

A great deal of fun
The Economist


Extremely accurate and often amusing answers to everyday issues
Daily Mail

A pure delight, a salty-sweet mixture of hard science and bonkers whimsy
Boing Boing

The 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

A witty, educational examination of 'unusual approaches to common tasks' . . . generously laced with dry humor . . . Munroe's comic stick-figure art is an added bonus. . . . Apart from generating laughter, the book also manages to achieve his serious objective: to get his audience thinking
Publishers Weekly, starred review

A gleefully nerdy hypothetical instruction book for armchair scientists of all ages
