Performed by Randall Monroe

For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally bad that no one would ever try it. How To is a guide to the third kind of approach. It's full of highly impractical advice for everything from landing a plane to digging a hole.  
One ticket comes with a copy of How To: Absurd Scientific Advice For Real-World Problems, a seat at the event in the Hunt Library, and signing line access. Randall Munroe will discuss the book, then sign and personalize your copy.
