In the great tradition of the American almanac, The Areas of My Expertise is a brilliant and hilarious compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia, and sage wisdom on all topics large and small. Although best sellers such as Poor Richard's Almanack and The Book of Lists were certainly valuable, they also were largely true.

John Hodgman's first of three books of fake facts or "complete world knowledge" is so incredible, but it's more than just a book being read by the author, Hodgman takes his already hilarious work and turns it into an absolute performance with guests, musical accompaniment and more than what was ever on the page. It's dry, it's weird, but it's so amazing!

I've listened to this book 3 or 4 times already and I've bought it again here on Audible just to have it on hand wherever I am and so I can play it for whoever will listen.

A natural storyteller and raconteur in his own right - just listen to Paddle Your Own Canoe and Gumption - actor, comedian, carpenter, and all-around manly man Nick Offerman ( Parks and Recreation) brings his distinctive baritone and a fine-tuned comic versatility to Twain's writing. In a knockout performance, he doesn't so much as read Twain's words as he does rejoice in them, delighting in the hijinks of Tom - whom he lovingly refers to as a "great scam artist" and "true American hero".

North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped - but Shin Dong-hyuk did.

A very interesting (and eye opening) story, but the narration volume and quality varies wildly which was pretty distracting.
