"We love reading about the lifestyle experiments of author A.J. Jacobs." -Entertainment Weekly "Jacobs's third book . . . establishes his success as a humorist beyond doubt, and perhaps without peer."-Chicago Sun-Times "Whether he's posing as a celebrity, outsourcing his chores, or adhering strictly to the Bible, we love reading about the wacky lifestyle experiments of author A.J. Jacobs."-Entertainment Weekly "Jacobs, the author of The Know-It-All (2004) and The Year of Living Biblically (2007), could be the funniest nonfiction writer this side of Bill Bryson.... The experiments themselves are fascinating and lead to genuinely surprising conclusions...and Jacobs's storytelling is lighthearted and frequently laugh-out-loud funny.... There aren't a lot of nonfiction books you want to read over and over, but this is certainly one of them."-Booklist (starred review)
