The uproarious New York Times bestselling author of The Year of
Living Biblically and The Know-It-All gathers his adventures as a
human guinea pig into one of the funniest and most enlightening
books of the year.
• An irresistible page-turner filled with surprising wisdom: For
his first hit book, Jacobs read the Encyclopedia Britannica. For
his second, he followed every single rule in the Bible. Now comes a
collection of his most outrageous and thought-provoking experiments
yet. In The Guinea Pig Diaries, Jacobs goes undercover as a
beautiful woman. He outsources everything in his life to India,
from answering his emails to arguing with his wife. He spends two
months saying whatever is on his mind. He lives like George
Washington. Plus several other life-changing experiments-one of
which involves public nudity.
• Amazing sales record: The humor of A.J. Jacobs has produced
sales that are anything but laughable. His books have more than
half a million copies in print, and they have spent a combined
twenty-nine weeks on the New York Times bestseller lists and
counting. He has inspired many imitators, but none has matched his
ability to combine side-splitting entertainment with profound life
• A media favorite: To promote his books, Jacobs has appeared on
The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today show, Good Morning America,
Anderson Cooper 360, Conan O'Brien, and NPr's Fresh Air. Jacobs is
all over the Internet as well, from Slate to the Huffington Post to
Playboy.com. He is a regular contributor to NPR's Weekend Edition.
And he's the editor-at-large at Esquire magazine, where versions of
some of these experiments have appeared.
