Overview

The New York Times bestseller by Famous Minor Television Personality John Hodgman?The Daily Show?s 'Resident Expert' and the 'PC' in the iconic Apple ads-picks up exactly where his first book left off. In fact, 'the new volume is in every way a continuation of Areas of My Expertise, except in the ways it's clearly superior.'(The Onion AV Club)

In 2005, John Hodgman published his first compendium of Complete World Knowledge, The Areas of My Expertise, a handy volume of fake trivia and made-up facts. Hodgmania was born. Virtually overnight, John Hodgman was whisked from tweedy obscurity to the high ether of minor celebrity. And from his strange new vantage point as a Famous Minor Television Personality, Hodgman realized that there is some world knowledge yet to be documented. And so he returned to exactly where he had left off-namely, page 256 of the paperback edition of The Areas of My Expertise. And he brought with him: MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE Which, naturally, begins on page 257. Like its predecessor, More Information than You Require consists of brief articles, overlong lists, frighteningly complex charts, and beguiling narratives on new and familiar themes such as:

THE PAST (because there is always more of it)
THE FUTURE (because they say there is still some left)
MOLE-MEN (including a list of 700 Mole-man names)
GAMBLING, THE SPORT OF THE ATHSMATIC MAN (including hermit crab racing)
CRYPTOGEOGRAPHY (including Canada)
HOW TO BE A FAMOUS MINOR TELEVISION PERSONALITY (Hint: Go on television)

AND NOW, the relatively pocket-sized and inexpensive paperback edition includes even more

MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE, updated to include the very latest in implausibility.
PLUS!: This paperback edition includes a special self-expanding fold-out edition of THE TAXONOMY OF COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, which you have probably never seen before because it has been carefully hidden. UNTIL NOW.

    Want to Laugh?

    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.

    Packed with useless info!

    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?
