Alex picked the book this week but in all honesty, I probably would have picked it up sooner rather than later. It's been flying off the shelves at my job and has had tantalizing pictures luring me into its pages.
This book is, in the truest sense of the word, a coffee table book. You can stick it on your coffee table or a side table and people can pick it up and read snippets of it, and then put it back down. It's fun and it's funny and it's informative and it's a conversation piece all in one. Considering it's a book about stick figure web comics and science, that's REALLY hard to do.
But Munroe keeps you interested and engaged and amused and not to mention makes you a little smarter by the end of the day. Everyone should go out and buy this book. That's right, I said BUY it. I mean, ok, you should read it to, but go buy yourself a copy. You'll be really happy you did.
