Me without you by Lisa Swerling; Ralph Lazar pdf free download.

Looking for the perfect way to say I love you to a special someone? From famed illustrators Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar, the New York Times bestselling book Me Without You features countless cute color illustrations of scenarios that are simply incomplete without two. A uniquely charming gift for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, or just because, readers will find themselves dipping into this beguiling book again and again.

I got this for my wife as a gift on Valentine’s Day (though not all she got). It was very cute and she enjoyed it even more than I expected. I guess it’s basically formatted like a children’s book, but cute. It begins with “Me without you is like…”, the next page is “… sky without blue”, and then every following page has some other little rhyming comparison, such as “hair without do”, “ghost without boo”, “kung without fu”, etc., and just keeps going on and on like that for every page, each with a little illustration.

I bought this book for my boyfriend for Valentines day. Its really long and my favorite references were the Doctor Who ones and the Harry Potter ones! Its just a really cute and simple way to say when we’re not together I’m not complete!
This is a great little book that works as a perfect gift or reminder to tell someone you care about them. The illustrations are cute and every page rhymes. I gave it as a gift to my girlfriend and she loves it. It’s something we’ll keep out, lying around for a quick glance when we need a pick me up.
Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar are best known for their cartoon lines Harold’s Planet and Vimrod. Their greeting cards have sold in the millions. They live with their children in Marin County, California.

What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe pdf free download.

From the creator of the wildly popular webcomic xkcd, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask.

Millions of people visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe’s iconic webcomic. His stick-figure drawings about science, technology, language, and love have a large and passionate following.

Fans of xkcd ask Munroe a lot of strange questions. What if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90 percent the speed of light? How fast can you hit a speed bump while driving and live? If there was a robot apocalypse, how long would humanity last?

In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations, and consults with nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by signature xkcd comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion.

The book features new and never-before-answered questions, along with updated and expanded versions of the most popular answers from the xkcd website. What If? will be required reading for xkcd fans and anyone who loves to ponder the hypothetical.

“What If? is one of my Internet must-reads, and I look forward to each new installment, and always read it with delight.” —Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

“Randall Munroe is a national treasure.” —Phil Plait

“For scientists, the price of progress is specialization. When the goal of any researcher is to lay claim to a tiny niche in a crowded discipline, it’s hard for laypeople to find answers to the really important interdisciplinary questions. Questions like, ‘Is it possible to build a jetpack using downward-firing machine guns?’ Fortunately, such people can turn to Randall Munroe, the author of the XKCD comic strip loved by fans of internet culture. . . . For Munroe, who writes with a clarity and wit honed over eight years of writing captions for his webcomic, the fact that a question might be impossible to solve is no deterrent to pursuing it.” —Wall Street Journal Speakeasy blog

“By speaking the language of geeks. . . while dealing with relationships and the meaning of a computer-centric life, xkcd has become required reading for techies across the world….The Internet has also created a bond between Mr. Munroe and his readers that is exceptional. They reenact in real life the odd ideas he puts forward in his strip.” —The New York Times

“With his steady regimen of math jokes, physics jokes, and antisocial optimism, xkcd creator Randall Munroe, a former NASA roboticist, scores traffic numbers in NBC.com or Oprah.com territory. One key to the strip’s success may be that it doesn’t just comment on nerd culture, it embodies nerd culture.” —Wired, in an issue featuring “the people who have shaped the planet’s past 20 years”

“Sometimes the beloved geek-chic webcomic xkcd is funny in a broadly accessible way. Sometimes it’s achingly poignant, sometimes it’s socially intelligent, and sometimes it’s esoteric humor that programmers or scientists have to explain to the rest of us. But at its most ambitious, it either packs massive amounts of interesting information into a small space, or engages in breathtaking experiments with the medium….[A]t its best [xkcd] isn’t a strip comic so much as an idea factory and a shared experience.” —Onion AV Club
