More Information Than You Require

John Hodgman was once a lowly author and former professional literary agent, until he was asked to be on the Daily Show following the publication of his first book, The Areas of My Expertise. Both that book and this new one, More Information Than You Require, are books of knowledge and trivia with one catch: Hodgman made it all up. Most of us know the author from those pesky Mac commercials--he plays the PC--but he's hardly the bumbling guy he plays. Rather, he's an expert humorist. The book had me constantly laughing out loud. I was also fortunate to hear Hodgman on NPR by chance, which was also hilarious. Here's a link to his appearance on the Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me program.
