John Hodgman is a Former Professional Literary Agent, Famous Minor Television Personality, and Noted Writer. His new book of fabricated knowledge is More Information Than You Require.
Hodgman’s new book, More Information Than You Require, is a compilation of humorous fake trivia, and it’s a continuation of his last book, the best-selling The Areas of My Expertise. And it begins on Page 237 –- exactly where The Areas of My Expertise left off.
"You ask yourself, ‘What is it I think I know?’ and you say it with a straight face," he said. "And if you can’t think of what to say, there’s always the Internet."
John is one of America’s favourite polymaths spanning the disciplines of writing, comedy and acting. No less than three books have been joyously welcomed by ”Hodgmaniacs” worldwide and very recently his one hour comedy show ‘Ragnarok’ was released exclusively on Netflix to a rousing reception of applause. I wanted to know more about John’s upbringing and it’s environs and I got just that. Hopefully this is not all.
