Greg Proops is an internationally renowned comedian, best known for starring on the hit improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and for his popular, award-winning podcast, The Smartest Man in the World, which Rolling Stone magazine called "some of the boldest comedy on the podcasting frontier right now". But Proops is also a fountain of historical knowledge, a wealth of pop-culture trivia, and a generally charming know-it-all.
The Smartest Book in the World is based on Proops' sensational, iTunes Top 10 podcast. The audiobook is a rollicking reference guide to the most essential areas of knowledge in Proops' universe, from the noteworthy names of the ancient world and baseball to the movies you must see and the albums you must hear. Complete with history's juiciest tales and curious backstories, Proops expounds on the merits of poetry and proper punctuation, delivering this wealth of information with his signature style and Proopsian panache. An offbeat and exuberant guide to everything, The Smartest Book in the World gives you everything you need to know to always be the smartest person in the room.
"It's a terrifically random appreciation of cultural touchstones that's sure to inspire readers to look further." (Publishers Weekly)
