Another enjoyable adventure with AJ. I don't think I'll ever enjoy him as much as I did in The Know-It-All but this was pretty good.

Light reading, funny, with some interesting factoids about healthy living.

AJ is great. Not my favorite of his, but great light reading and I can't wait for his next experiment!

An impossible task to follow the bible literally for an entire year. (I don't think it can be done for an entire day). This was an interesting read and I learned more about the bible than I thought I would. He tried with sincerity to explore a more biblical life and although there were moments that made me laugh out loud I appreciated the fact that he approached this undertaking as an agnostic but with an open mind and devoted attempt.

I just gobbled this treat up! A.J. Jacobs makes me think, laugh/snort, make connections, learn, and ponder. I’m grateful that he takes me along on his journeys and quests. He generously shares his family and friends along the way, for which I’m grateful. His brilliance and heart have made me a loyal reader. I’ll read anything he writes.
