5.0 out of 5 stars This book is invaluable., October 26, 2008
This review is from: More Information Than You Require (Hardcover)
Simply put, this book (and its predecessor) is/are the epitome of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE. I bought this book the day it came out, and the introduction alone was worth the full purchase price.

In addition to useful information on mole-men and gambling, this book also includes a helpful section on the presidents, past and future, as well as a brief exposition on how the glorious half-sultan of our nation is chosen.

The page-a-day calendar is also a handy feature, but I hope that the paperback edition has different facts, as buying the same calendar twice would be uneconomical. (You will have to buy the paperback edition, since the proper way to read a page-a-day calender is, of course, to rip out each page once you're done with it.)

All in all, this book is well worth any amount of money that you agree to pay for it, and should be on every shelf of the serious scholar.

This review was mentioned on John Hodgman's Twitter, so on the off chance that he comes back to read this comment, let me say this: No, Mr. Hodgman. I have no mercy.

You are a cruel person.

That is all.
