Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the paperless (or "audiobook") edition of More Information Than You Require, a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE assembled and illumined by John Hodgman, a Famous Minor Television Personality. It contains all of the half-truths, fake trivia, amazing made-up facts, and molemanic lore as the paper edition, narrated here almost entirely by Resident Expert John Hodgman, occasionally interrupted by this veritable extravaganza of illustrious and sometimes presumptuous guests: Dick Cavett, Jonathan Coulton, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Ira Glass, Robin Goldwasser, Rachel Maddow, Paul Rudd, Paul F. Tompkins, and Sarah Vowell.PLUS: This recording includes ALL 700 MOLE-MAN NAMES as they were written and subsequently performed LIVE BEFORE A STUDIO AUDIENCE in an underground lair in Brooklyn, N.Y.

What the Critics Say

"In every way a continuation of Areas of My Expertise, except in the ways it's clearly superior....More Information Than You Require is exactly the tonic for these truth-challenged times: a transformation of pedestrian reality through the enlightened power of imagination and insatiable list-making." (The Onion A/V Club)
"I love this book so much I nearly read it." (Justin Long)

Unbelievable...

Any additional comments?

I had previously read this book before purchasing it on Audible and it STILL had me in hysterics. This is a definate MUST OWN if you have ANY bone of humor in your body.

John Hodgman

I got the distinct feeling reading this book in dead tree that he'd almost intended it to be heard rather then written. It is exactly that. The audio book is nearly a show performance with guest stars Jonathan Coulton, Rachel Maddow and others joining in. Hodgman snipes with his "troubadour" constantly, yet the obvious fondness for the material shines through. It is clear and side-achingly funny the entire go. The book is shockingly content packed, and probably one of my favorite audio books in my collection all ready. If you enjoyed the first book, do not hesitate. You will enjoy the material. If you didn't like the second book, try it in audio format. If you didn't enjoy either book, you're soul is worn out. Go down to the local SoulHut and get a new one. Preferably one in a bigger size.
