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
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! :-)

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.

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 :)

Some of these jokes need some research to get fully and that makes them all the more funny. Even the title is a joke as computer sequences start from zero not one. It is amazing how much expression can be got in a stick man (and woman). I've seen many of these before on the web and the author does talk about being confused why people would by a book of cartoons freely available on the web, but his extra commentary makes the book well worth it.

How can you not love it. Funny and witty, it makes you think, makes you happy, and sometimes a little sad. Buy it because it is a good book. Buy it because the author is so good and puts so much time into freely giving away their material (online).

Extra thought: its a good, easy little gift as well. No too big and not too expensive, but will surely brighten your friends day!

Format: Paperback
Every comic in here is available online (the only addition are some small annotations and puzzles), but the book is an excellent way to introduce someone to xkcd (my dad discovered it for example) or, with all the profits going either to charity or the author (the publisher is non-profit, a great way to show some appreciation to Randall Monroe for the free entertainment.
