To sum it up: it might confuse you but it leaves a lot on the mind....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Xkcd: Volume 0 (Paperback)
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...
