What if? Book limited Extended Edition?

Postby Gefrierbrand » Thu Dec 15, 2016 1:15 pm UTC

Hi everyone.

I noticed that xkcd.com now offeres a link in the headbanner to an extended (an limited) version of the What If? book: Image
However, it only seems to advertise the German Version, and I coudn't find the original, english one.

So here are a few questions:
Is there an english version, and where can I get it?
Are the extra chapters completely new or just WhatIfs from the webside not published in the book yet?

Any help is really appreciated and thanks in advance.

I also would be interested in an english limited edition but have only seen the german one.

By comparing the content tables we find five new question at the end of the limited editon, (probably) all previous questions from the website:

Spinnen vs die Sonne (http://what-if.xkcd.com/136/)
Schwimmen auf dem Mond (http://what-if.xkcd.com/124/)
Ballonauto (http://what-if.xkcd.com/112/)
Weltraumbestattung (http://what-if.xkcd.com/134/)
Haufenweise Geld verdienen (probably http://what-if.xkcd.com/111/)

I now have bought the special Edition and can compare it to my existing (UK) book:

As you can see, the most prominent difference beside the language is the size and the coloring scheme:

Also, it does indeed contain the five additional chapters as mentioned above by Raidri.
