This book contains many of the best XKCD comics (including the mouse-over) and nice extras. Doodles, questions, enigmas... If you are a fan of the comics, this is definitely a must buy.

More Than a Print Version of the Free Comic Aug. 18 2010
By KAZ Vorpal, aka Michael Karl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author admonishes you, in his foreword, that you must have some kind of poor economic judgement, to be buying this book when the comic is free online.

But that does more to illustrate the kind of wit he has, than represent the truth, because the book is NOT a print-out of the pics you can get online, but is apparently based on the original, pen/pencil drawings (at least in part), giving you a (faint) insight into the process of their creation, plus giving a feeling of something authentic, like buying a cell from some favorite animation.

If you have NOT read the comic online, the domain name is XKCD (as you can infer from the name), go read it. If you'd have liked the book anyway, you'll be back to buy it out of sheer joy for the sarcky satire you've experienced.

Who will like XKCD?

* Anyone who likes Big Bang Theory. This is the one source of "nerd/geek" humor superior to that one.
* All Wikipedians, except the anal-retentive ones who didn't even want us to redirect the word malamanteau to the XKCD article.
* Those who are disgusted with "SyFy" for being ashamed of science fiction. (google "syfy, we disown you")
* The kind of people who hear about MIT pranks and think "I could have done better".
* Problem-solvers who, upon realizing that the a-hole ops of #Linux answer every question with "RTFM", spoof another IP while running a hacked ID validator and give wrong answers to their own questions, baiting the experts into jumping in with corrections. And then go help run #linpeople to answer the questions right.
* People who, having studied linguistics, math/physics, logic, engineering, or some other intellectual discipline, determine that the greatest benefit is all the extra puns it allows them to notice.
* Sarcastic romantics
* Pseudointellectuals...OK, they won't, but they'll feel obligated to pretend.
* I will. Did. Do. And that's what counts.

A must have for fans Aug. 26 2010
By A. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This doesn't give you any new comics, but it does have a lulzy introduction that makes fun of you (the reader) for buying a printed version of a free webcomic. Still, if you're a fan of the series it's a must have just for the showcasing reasons alone. Also, whenever I want to introduce somebody to the GLORY that is XKCD, I can now say "here, browse through this!" instead of giving them a web address they'll likely never go to. Also, if you've never bought anything from the XKCD store but have been reading the comic for years (like me), this is your chance to give Randall some money finally!

The best way to waste part of your afternoon instead of doing actual value-added work. The whole thing's really well done, and if you have any idea what xkcd is, just buy the book and support the guy drawing it.

Doesn't really have anything the website doesn't already have, but I've had so much enjoyment out of XKCD that buying this book is an easy way to say "thanks." And it's a fun coffee table book.

"A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language" - very good except for the romance. April 16 2014
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author calls it "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language."
The math and language are often very funny. (For example, the one about the heroes of open source.)
The sarcasm is often quite insightful. (I agree about Feynman.)
Sadly, the romance is rather repetitive and extremely depressing.
