New Bookring: "The Know-It-All" by AJ Jacobs

The Know-It-All: A.J.Jacobs

I loved this book, although it's hard to describe what it is and why it works! On one level, it's a book about one man's quest to read the entire Encyclopeadia Britannica, and in a sense it fits into other books by men trying to do 'pointless' tasks supported by long suffering wives / girlfirends (aka Dave Gorman, Daniel Wallace). But the more you read, the more you realise this is a very honest piece of writing which explores the authors relationships, particularly his relationship with his Dad.
