More Information Than You Require - John Hodgman
Daily Show correspondent and PC pitch-man, John Hodgman is back with another treasury of ephemera. In his new book, Hodgman casts an incredibly wide net, including sections on Food, Gambling, and How to Become Famous. Absurdist humor doesn’t get better than this, with its pseudo-didactic tone and loosely autobiographical nature. Short essays, endless footnotes, and a tongue-in-cheek timeline combine seamlessly, making More Information Than You Require (Dutton, $25) the perfect way to steal a few minutes and laughs.
