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?
