Given by a friend at work; so far, it seems like a better title should be "The Explaining Man's Guide to Armchair Estimates of All Sorts of Random Crap". Mixed feelings, but it's a quick enough read that I'll probably finish it.
------
Update: Had to give up halfway through. The writer is that particular kind of geek you hope never to meet at a party - the kind that knows everything better than everyone else, not because they actually know it, but because they have utter faith in their ability to work anything out through pure logic, and will proceed to attempt to prove this to you without invitation. At a party, you'd be well advised to seek the bathroom or a drink refill within the first five minutes. With a book, you can simply put it down.
