Meet the Author

John Hodgman is a writer, comedian, and actor. He is the author of three New York Times bestselling books—The Areas of My ExpertiseMore Information Than You Require, and That Is All. After an appearance to promote his books on The Daily Show, he was invited to return as a contributor, serving as the show’s "Resident Expert" and "Deranged Millionaire." This led to an unexpected and, frankly, implausible career before the camera. He has performed comedy for the president of the United States, at a TED conference, and in a crypt in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. Finally, he is the host of the popular Judge John Hodgman podcast, in which he settles serious disputes between real people, such as "Is a hot dog a sandwich?" and "Should we tell our children the TRUTH about Santa Claus?" He also contributes a weekly column under the same name for The New York Times Magazine. He is currently working on a memoir, Vacationland, which will be published in October 2017.

Hysterically funny and great for a quick laugh when you don't have time to hunker down during a busy day. I don't know how John Hodgman comes up with these things but I hope he keeps at it. A few topics were a little obscure for me but it didn't matter. Those were actually intellectually stimulating and there's plenty of other good stuff that makes it well-worth the price. That is all.

I love how crazy-nuts this book can get sometimes! I really didn't expect a follow-up to the first one, so this came as a pleasant surprise (It seems there's going to be a third as well). Fans of Hodgman's unique voice on The Daily Show will be right at home here. I almost got tired of reading the list of 700 Mole-man names (almost) but I really enjoyed the whole thing. It's so CRAZY, it deserves some kind of special recognition. Who knew so many U.S. presidents had hooks for hands? WERE YOU EVEN AWARE OF IT?
