Hodgman is great! His fake “information” is delightfully imaginative and intelligent. He is joined by several guests in his narration of the book's first half, all of whom add to the high spirits. Numerous “Easter eggs" show up for those who happen to be familiar with a particular field of knowledge. I really enjoyed these when I got them, but I'm sure I missed many.
The second half of the book consists of his “It Happened Today” daily calendar (previously podcast) and an enumeration of literally hundreds of identifiers of “molemen”. This half is best appreciated in small doses as it can be a bit much when taken in large quantities.
Anybody can simply read words on a page and try to add character voices, but Tell 'Em Steve Dave went well past that providing insight and commentary into some classic fairy tales. You won't get just the "what" here, you'll get hilarious opinions on the "why".
