The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World سے طرف کی A.J. Jacobs
Just for the heck of it, one دن A.J. Jacobs decided to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, all thirty-two volumes. Surprisingly his details about his adventure is quite amusing and he does share some very interesting tidbits from the EB. یا as Jon Stewart says: "The Know-It-All is a hilarious book and quite impressive achievement. I've always said, why doesn't someone put out a less complete version of the encyclopedia? Well done, A.J."

It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

I explained in my گزشتہ linkthe meaning of the this phrase, but here is a quick recap: advance readers' copies are sent pre-published کتابیں سے طرف کی publishers in hopes that a particularly enthusiastic recipient will personally promote the work to his یا her customers, and thus increase sales exponentially.

Titles mentioned in my first مضمون included:

- Half-Assed سے طرف کی Jeanette Fulda
- The Rhino with Glue-on Shoes سے طرف کی Lucy Spelman

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away سے طرف کی link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in love with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read.

[teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...
