I just finished The Know-It-All by A.J Jacobs. Really interesting book, and Jacobs is a very funny man. I loved how he intermingled facts from the encyclopaedia with an ongoing story of his life and attempts to conceive - I think it might have been a bit dry otherwise.
Hey MC! It's been a while. Check out my thread on The Know-It-All here. It was an immensely enjoyable book, and he's really made it really funny.
I loved his attempts at trying to make use of all the facts he's gleaning from the Encyclopedia by joining a gameshow. Brilliant touch.
