What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions

Probably one of the funniest non-fiction + fiction book I’ve read yet. The author also works on the XKCD comics, and the illustrations in the book are hilarious (and quite helpful often). The egregiously hypothetical questions are definitely fictional, but the answers are not, and I really like how this work doesn’t fit into the natural categorization of books into fiction and non-fiction. I was so hooked up to the book’s content that I finished this book in 2-3 days straight after finding it in my sister’s shelf.
