  • More Information Than You Require


Like its predecessor, More Information Than You Require compiles incredibly handy made up facts into brief articles, overlong lists, frighteningly complex charts, and beguiling narratives on new and familiar themes such as:
  • THE PAST (because there is always more)
  • THE FUTURE(because they say there is still some left to discuss)
  • THE METHOD BY WHICH WE 'ELECT' OUR PRESIDENTS (as this will be happening soon)
  • THE STRANGE OKAPI (an actual animal) GAMBLING: THE SPORT OF THE ASTHMATIC MAN (includes hermit crab racing)
  • PLUS: 700 MOLE-MAN NAMES (and their occupations)

  • Yes. HODGMAN MAY HAVE BEEN BRIEFLY ABSENT FROM YOUR LIFE, but with this volume he is ready to pick up exactly where The Areas of My Expertise left off - specifically at page 237.

    AND NOW, the relatively pocket-sized and inexpensive paperback edition includes even more

    MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE, updated to include the very latest in implausibility.

    ALSO!: This paperback edition includes a special self-expanding fold-out edition of THE TAXONOMY OF COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, which you have probably never seen before because it has been carefully hidden. UNTIL NOW.
