HOW TO Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems

by | Read by Wil Wheaton

Contemporary Culture • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

If you've ever wondered how to contain an above-ground pool with just cheese, or how to open many thousands of water bottles at the same time with nuclear weapons in order to fill your pool, this is the audiobook for you. And while the audiobook cannot provide the illustrations that the physical book includes, Wil Wheaton's friendly and straightforward narration style paired with occasionally exaggerated theatrical moments more than make up for them. Wheaton's conversational tone creates an excellent juxtaposition with the author's dry humor and embellished scientific commentary, giving listeners a delightful learning experience that frequently finds them laughing out loud. A truly enjoyable listen that really delivers on its subtitle. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
