The Abstruse Goose Book

The guy behind the webcomic Abstruse Goose has announced that he has created a book of the first 100 strips. What he doesn't say is that he's added a LOT of commentary on them. my_million_dollar_idea
Since many of the strips are making jokes about maths, quantum mechanics and other similar scientific stuff this is good stuff. Currently the book is definitely a v1.0 book (actually I'd say its more like v0.9) as there are a few links back from notes to cartoons missing and a lot of "I plan to add something here" messages and so on.

But none the less it is good and well worth downloading - it's a 19MB PDF so it takes a while and, for me at least, it caused Adobe Reader to go into fits when I tried to read it in the browser as opposed to downloading and opening.

Oh and do contribute to his Feed the Goose fund if you like it.
