Book #49

Book #49: The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment, by A.J. Jacobs

Not as good as his previous works, but in the same vein - A.J. takes on projects that take over his life. His first two books involved him living the Bible as literally as possible for a year and then reading the Encyclopedia Britannica from cover to cover. This book summarized a series of "experiments" he did for a month or so each, ranging from outsourcing his entire life (including having someone else email apologies to his wife!) to posing nude for a magazine after an actress he was writing an article about for Esquire said the only way she would pose nude was if he did so as well.

Same kind of humor as before, and I look forward to reading more books by him. :)
