The Areas of My Expertise is a lavish compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia, and sage wisdom—all of it completely unresearched, completely undocumented and (presumably) completely untrue, fabricated by the illuminating, prodigious imagination of John Hodgman, certifiable genius.

Look out for John Hodgman's latest book, Vacationland, available from Viking in Fall 2017.

Editorial Reviews

"Wonderfully absurd." —The New York Times"Hilarious . . . Nabokov's Pale Fire as directed by Wes Anderson." —Time Out New York"If Borges and Ben Franklin got drunk and decided to write a book together, the result might have been something a lot like this freaky 'almanac'." —Tom Perrotta"Even if you buy this book for the 700 hobo names alone, you will have gotten more than your money's worth." —Dave Eggers"A book of absurd tall tales, tables and charts spun from the warped brain of John Hodgman . . . Impressively eclectic." —The Los Angeles Times
