    Story

    Early in his career, A.J. Jacobs put his Ivy League education to work at Entertainment Weekly. He emerged five years later knowing which stars have fake boobs, which stars have toupees, which have both, and not much else. This realization led Jacobs on a life-changing quest: to read the entire contents of the Encyclopedia Britannica, all 33,000 pages, all 44 million words.

    Steve James says: "What were they thinking?"
    "Waste of time, money & patience"
    Overall

    Should have read the reviews before purchasing it. Couldn't force myself to listen past "F". A tale of knowledge vs. wisdom. NOT! It's just a sophmoric, alphbetized dribble; exacerbated by 3rd grade-ish (predictable) humor.

    If this "author" made money on this, I'll take up writing instead of truck driving.
