    Welcome to the paperless (or "audiobook") edition of More Information Than You Require, a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE assembled and illumined by John Hodgman, a Famous Minor Television Personality. It contains all of the half-truths, fake trivia, amazing made-up facts, and molemanic lore as the paper edition, narrated here by Resident Expert John Hodgman, occasionally interrupted by this veritable extravaganza of illustrious and sometimes presumptuous guests.

    Sideways is the story of two friends, Miles and Jack, going away together for the last time to steep themselves in everything that makes it good to be young and single: pinot, putting, and prowling bars. In the week before Jack plans to marry, the pair heads out from Los Angeles to the Santa Ynez wine country.

    "This book made me surprisingly angry."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the movie, but something about the way the characters were written and read made them terribly unlikeable. I finished the book, it was well written. I just didn't like any of the people in it!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Probably. I am not sure his style was idea for this book.


    Did Sideways inspire you to do anything?

    no...

  • Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian

    (51)

    Millions of viewers know and love Bob Saget from his role as the sweetly neurotic father on the smash hit Full House, and as the charming wisecracking host of America's Funniest Home Videos. And then there are the legions of fans who can't get enough of his scatological, out-of-his-mind stand-up routines, comedy specials, and outrageously profane performances in such shows as HBO's Entourage and the hit documentary The Aristocrats.

    Hillary says: "Meh to the 2nd Power"
    "Sincere, heartfelt, hilarious."

With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other, a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage.

    Story

    Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

    Arlette says: "It's deep. Deal with it."
    "A right chickamoo!"
