The book is a rollicking reference guide to the most essential areas of kwledge in Proops's universe, from the teworthy names of the ancient world and baseball, to the movies you must see and the albums you must hear. Complete with history's juiciest tales and curious back-stories, Proops expounds on the merits of poetry and proper punctuation, delivering this wealth of information with his signature style and Proopsian panache. An off-beat and exuberant guide to everything, The Smartest Book in the Worldgives you everything you need to kw to always be the smartest person in the room. Well, unless the Proopmaster is there, too.
