You may recognize Hodgman as the “lame ass” PC guy from the Apple ads, or, more respectably, as a correspondent on The Daily Show and a hilarious addition to This American Life. Now you can know him even more with this deadpan almanac of all sorts completely false facts.
A large part of The Areas of My Expertise specifically focuses on made up facts about hobos. Hodgman is a very funny man so the book is, you guessed it, funny. The audio version used to be free on iTunes, and I have heard good things, but now it costs 18.95 so he can just forget it!
