Hier der Buchtrailer zu John Hodgmans neuem Buch „That is all“. Solltet ihr den Mann nicht kennen, lest ihr zwar das falsche Blog, aber: Er war der PC aus der Apple-Werbung (und der Mac aus der Apple Werbung, Justin Long, spielt im obigen Trailer auch mit… neben Brooke Shields, questlove und Nas), regelmäßiger Gast in The Daily Show und hat beim Radio & TV Correspondents' Dinner vor Obama eine dermaßen nerdige Rede gehalten (die ich damals auch hier hatte, falls ihr die auch nicht kennt, hier ist sie). Jedenfalls: Toller Buchtrailer, Snip von Amazon:

In 2005, Dutton published The Areas of My Expertise, a handy little book of Complete World Knowledge, marked by the distinction that all of the fascinating trivia and amazing true facts were completely made up by its author, John Hodgman. At the time, Hodgman was merely a former literary agent and occasional scribbler of fake trivia. In short: a nobody. But during an interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, an incredible transformation occurred. He became a famous minor television personality. You may ask: During his whirlwind tornado ride through the high ether of minor fame and outrageous fortune, did John Hodgman forget how to write books of fake trivia? The answer is: Yes. Briefly. But soon, he remembered! And so he returned, crashing his Kansas farmhouse down upon the wicked witch of ignorance with More Information Than You Require, a New York Times bestseller containing even more mesmerizing and essential fake trivia, including seven hundred mole-man names (and their occupations).

And now, John Hodgman completes his vision with That Is All, the last book in a trilogy of Complete World Knowledge. Like its predecessors, That Is All compiles incredibly handy made-up facts into brief articles, overlong lists, and beguiling narratives on new and familiar themes. It picks up exactly where More Information left off-specifically, at page 596-and finally completes COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, just in time for the return of Quetzalcoatl and the end of human history in 2012.
