What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions - Randall Munroe

As this was a library copy,  I am buying this book.  I already want to reread it. I want to make sure I read ALL the footnotes. Gems,  all of them. 


My favorite parts were the Weird and Worrying Questions from the What If Inbox and the question about swimming in a typical spent nuclear fuel pool.  When the author asked his friend who works at a nuclear reactor his opinion,  the response made me laugh for five minutes.  


This is a great book.  I'm buying my best friend a copy.  This is a great gift idea for a reader.
