There aren't categories to really describe what Hodgman has written, but "Lovecraft-ian Meta Humor Coffee Table Conversation Starters about Mortality and the End of the World" comes close.

Careful! If you click on the hardcover option you do not get John Hodgman's book "That is All", but you get a different book called "Is That All?", but an anonymous author.

This trilogy could not have been more epic had it featured enchanted jewelery and little people with a penchant for lava-wrestling.

Read That is All. Laugh as your unworthy friends are taken unawares by Ancient and Ridiculous Terrors from Beyond Reality. Of course, you are doomed as well. But hey! At least you knew what was coming! Read That is All. Why not face the end of days with a smile on your face and a smug sense of superiority? Read That is All.

If you haven't read his previous works "Areas of My Expertise" and "More Information Than You Require", be prepared to be driven down into a dark, bottomless pool of non-fact: the final inclusions on his work of complete world knowledge and a day-by-day break down of the end times. Do not be frightened by sporadic subject matter and frequent callbacks to his previous books, you can pick up the series here as a new reader and follow the excellent story of a deranged millionaire staring into the spectacular, terrifying void.

If you're already familiar with John Hodgman's series then you may be like me: I was going to hold out until Hodgman and Jonathan Coulton got back into a studio to record the audiobook, but I couldn't hold out. Neither should you. There's too much good stuff here, and after multiple listens of hobo names and molemen it's easy to hear the author's voice and the troubadour's guitar as you read.

In addition, the predictions he makes start by December 2011. You won't be able to hear an audiobook version before Ragnarok does or doesn't begin, and reading Hodgman's advice for an apocalypse yet-to-be has a unique value that you'll only be able to cash in on for the next month or so. Additionally, trying to speed read to the end before the blood-red sea devours your home and family may also prove cumbersome.

Worth your money and time, as if you'll have either when the supercollapse begins and the Ancient and Unspeakable Ones return.

If you're a fan of Hodgman's specific flavor of humor, this book is fantastic. Great conclusion to the trilogy. (Even better as an audiobook.)

Sit in public laugh out loud smile to yourself funny literature. Still so insightful and meditative. The pleasure of reading this book is almost of the same quality as getting a cast off after months and finally being able to really scratch your wrist. I certainly can't recommend it to anyone because that is just too big of a gamble at this stage of the game, but John Hodgman is my kind of prophet. If the World doesn't end on 21, Dec.2012 I will give him another chance to call it for sure. That is All.
