XKCD: Volume 0 is the first collection of XKCD strips. Munroe selected the best of XKCD from the first 500 or so comics. He added a little commentary to a few strips and included some coded messages, which I didn't bother decoding. The book will no doubt delight XKCD fans.

Oh, and the book's page numbers are in Base 3, there are encrypted messages in red throughout the book, the tooltip texts are all included, and all proceeds from this book go to charity.
I actually got this book from the library, so don't worry about it.
Though, I may end up buying it. I love xkcd.
The book is exactly what it purports: a collection of xkcd comics in book form. Since you can all go to xkcd.com, I'm not going to write a true review of the book. ...more
"While Mr. Munroe conceded a nostalgic love of books, remembering how he devoured books of a favorite comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes, he said he is now a committed Kindle 2 user, preferring it to print. Still, he said: 'I have this urge. You want to print them out and put them up on places. There is something good about collecting them together.'"
And I never really liked math, but I love this series.
Why buy an XKCD book when it's free on the internet?

The book is, fundamentally, just a bunch of xkcd strips in printed form, but with a nice layout and comments by the author. There really isn't much of a reason to spend money on this (you get basically the same experience from the website), but it is a nice way to support the creator, Randall Munroe, and it's nice to have it on a shelf.
Randall Munroe describes xkcd as a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. While it's practically required reading in the geek community, xkcd fans are as varied as the comic's subject matter. This book creates laughs from science jokes on one page to relationship humor on another.
xkcd: volume 0 is the first book from the immensely popular webcomic with a passionate readership (just Google "xkcd meetup").
The artist selected personal and fan favorites from his first 600 comics. It wa
But the vast majority I do get, and are very funny. I think my favorite is the one about gaming with death.
Loved this book, discovered it by reading "What If" by the same author. I enjoyed his humour and decided to check out XKCD. Filled to the brim with science jokes and puns this quirky little book of stick figures is sure to bring a smile to your face.
