The Know It All

In Literature on January 21, 2009 at 9:31 am

Know-It-AllTake the Ecyclopedia Britannica and condense it’s useful knowledge into a single memoir and you have The Know It All.   A.J. Jacobs decided to sit down and read Ecyclopedia’s 33,000 pages when he felt like all that he had learned throughout his educational career was being lost in every day life.  The book is cleverly written and full of knowledge not limited to the Britannica’s 32 volumes.  A.J. records how this adventure effects his relationships, seeks refuge in clubs and organizations where his new knowledge doesn’t ostracize him, and participates in Who Wants to be A Millionaire.
