"The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of What If? and How To provides his best answers yet to the weirdest questions you never thought to ask The millions of people around the world who read and loved What If? still have questions, and those questions are getting stranger. Thank goodness xkcd creator Randall Munroe is here to help. Planning to ride a fire pole from the moon back to Earth? The hardest part is sticking the landing. Hoping to cool the atmosphere by opening everyone's freezer door at the same time? Maybe it's time for a brief introduction to thermodynamics. Want to know what would happen if you rode a helicopter blade, built a billion-story building, made a lava lamp out of lava, or jumped on a geyser as it erupted? Okay, if you insist. Before you go on a cosmic road trip, feed the residents of New York City to a T. rex, or fill every church with bananas, be sure to consult this practical guide for impractical ideas. Unfazed by absurdity, Randall consults the latest research on everything from swing-set physics to airplane-catapult design to clearly and concisely answer his readers' questions. As he consistently demonstrates, you can learn a lot from examining how the world might work in very specific extreme circumstances. Filled with bonkers science, boundless curiosity, and Randall's signature stick-figure comics, What If? 2 is sure to be another instant classic adored by inquisitive readers of all ages"--… (més)

This What If? book was more jam-packed with neat ideas than the first one! ( )
  troymcc | Jan 28, 2023 |
This one is just as much fun as the first book. I like that the answers are generally shorter though Munroe does go to Mythbuster style absurd lengths at times. Some of my favorites are:

• How much meat a day would be needed to feed a T. Rex
• How long would it take to read every book
• Can you eat a cloud
• The billion-story building
• And the gag of "Things You Should Not Do" that runs throughout the book (Spoiler: Don't tell California that your farm is selling Pokemon eggs)

I listened to the audio book narrated by Wil Wheaton. You can tell Wheaton is enjoying himself immensely as you can hear the laughter in his voice at times as he reads, especially as he describes some of the cartoons.

I hope we get a 3rd What If? in the future. ( )

I love this book. Such an interesting and playful way to think about the world. I wish I knew more physics to be able to find stuff out like this. ( )

More science absurdism from Randall Munroe. Entertaining, silly, and extremely educational. Careful citation of sources is always appreciated, and this volume has rather more [citation needed] tags for facts like "the sun is hot", which I think Wikipedia would probably let go. ( )

Not quite as interesting as the first book, but still enjoyable. ( )

The author of this book is an internet cartoonist, not a health or safety expert. He likes it when things catch fire or explode, which means he does not have your best interests in mind. The publisher and the author disclaim responsibility for any adverse effects resulting, directly or indirectly, from information contained in this book.
(Introduction) I like ridiculous questions because nobody is expected to know the answer, which means it's okay to be confused.

Please make sure everyone is safely out of the Solar System before you fill it with soup.
