Shortest thesis ever?

I've just stuck together the four data chapters of my PhD thesis, those being the ones where I've done something new rather than talked about stuff or rehashed my existing data (I'm getting to that bit, don't worry). Altogether those four chapters are 76 pages and 16 000 words. I'm looking at 100-odd pages for the finished article, after three and a half years. Brevity is good, right?

go dude. yeah brevity good. my four chapters came to about 140-150pages.
Wasn't John Nash's thesis 29 pages? I seem to recall this, but I could be wrong...
I'm not sure how I feel about the comparison ;)
Einstein's was 21 pages
