This is a brilliant and uproarious compendium of handy reference tables and fascinating trivia. Hot on the heels of the Schott's Miscellany series comes this brilliant and uproarious bestseller - a lavish compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia and sage wisdom, all of it completely unresearched, entirely undocumented and (presumably) wholly untrue, fabricated by the illuminating and prodigious imagination of John Hodgman, a certifiable genius.
John Hodgman is a contributor to numerous magazines including, New York Times Magazine and McSweeney's. He also regularly appears on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He lives in New York City.
