Format: Paperback
Followed the comic since the early years. Love to see the best of the first 600 on paper. Recommend to any one who likes a bit of geeky or maths comedy. There are also little extras written along the sides of the pages which aren't in the original comics. The introduction by xkcd's creator is short and sweet, telling us a brief history of the comic and how Randall managed to think up such a gem. Highly recommended.

This book is simply a gem of excellently conceived, interesting, funny and sometimes quite profound humour. It sometimes needs a bit of insider knowledge - of computers or maths - to get the punchline, but that just makes it even better.

Such simple lines, such profound humour. Get it, get it! :-)

I'm not a web-kid, nor did I go to university, nor am I familiar with computer linguistics and lingo nor mathematical terms and jargon...so why, considering this is a funny book full of them, did I buy this?
In short despite, the mass of calculations and information printed onto the page, the human side of these sketches always manage to shine through. If anything, Munroe's simplistic scientific style, adds a lot of character to the strips that the stickmen don't 'show'.
His musings on love, life, critique on college/university subjects and life in general are all humorous (and in some cases, mind stretching...)
It might well help having a diploma to read this, but I still enjoyed it all the same...

Format: Paperback
I'm surprised to see so few reviews of this little piece of geeky art. I follow xkcd since the beginnings, and loved it since the very first moments. The book collects some of the most funny stripes that can be found on the site. It's nice to see on paper what you alway read online.
Bonus #1: there are lots of little extras (comments, additional drawings, games) which can't be found on the website.
Bonus #2: buying it you'll do also a little charity.

Go get it now (or get it as a present for your best geek friend, he'll love it :)

It may seem strange to pay for something that can be found for free on the internet but I brought this as a gift for my brother. He likes the Cyanide and Happiness comics and these are along the same lines but a little more... niche...? They play more on I suppose intelligent sarcastic jokes which is perfect for my brother. If in doubt just check out the website for a taste of the book - or just put the hyperlink in a card and call it a present if you're cheap.

This book is perfect gift for nerdy (or geeky) friends of yours (who nicely admit they are nerds!). The author's a genius and you'll laugh a lot by going through the stripes. It's a paperback, so maybe that's the weakest point, but it's very good quality.

Discovered XKCD a few years ago. It is a must for every geek, nerd and science buff. If you don't get it ... try explain XKCD.

Format: Paperback
This smart/witty/sarcastic cartoon takes up a space beyond Dilbert and other tech humour. Some of the laughs will actually take some research for some, but the effort is worth it for those in the know.
