    Are you a witless cretin with no reason to live? Would you like to know more about every piece of knowledge ever? Do you have cash? Then congratulations, because just in time for the death of the publishing industry as we know it comes the final book ever published, and the only one you will ever need: The Onion's compendium of all things known. Replete with an astonishing assemblage of facts, figures, statistics, threats, blood, and additional fees to edify even the most simple-minded book-buyer, The Onion Book of Known Knowledge is packed with valuable information.

    Maybe I missed something but this claims to be unabridged. I bought the audiobook here and bought the actual print book as a gift and when I compared them I found that the audio version is missing a substantial amount of material. For a comparison I checked the number of entries for Y for both versions. In the print version: 22. In the audio: 2. I doubt the audio version has more than 1/5 of the content of the print version. I wouldn't be so annoyed if it wasn't for the fact that they both cost the same.

    As for the content, it's pretty good but not as great as Our Dumb World or as most of the online content. It's got the weirdness you'd expect but the humor is kind of lacking.
