Getting the right point on a pencil is really a matter of skill and expertise. Most people need to kw how to achieve the perfect pencil point to match the job. Deep in New York's Hudson River Valley, craftsman David Rees - the world's number one #2 pencil sharpener - still practises the age old art of manual pencil sharpening. How To Sharpen Pencils is a book, a manifesto and a fully-illustrated walk-through of the many, many, many ways to sharpen a pencil. Delivered with pencil-sharp wit and hilarity, this is the authoritative guide to a dying art.
David Rees first came to fame as the author of Get Your War On, a Bush-era comic strip composed from clip-art that he emailed to friends. It was eventually serialized by Rolling Stone magazine, collected into three successful books, and turned into an off-Broadway play. He is also the author of the workplace satire My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable. He lives in Beacon, New York. John Hodgman (introduction) is the author of the bestsellers The Areas of My Expertise, and More Information Than You Require. He's also known for his appearances in Apple's Get a Mac advertising campaign, and for his correspondent work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
