Best-selling author and human guinea pig A. J. Jacobs puts his life to the test and reports on the surprising and entertaining results. He goes undercover as a woman, lives by George Washington’s moral code, and impersonates a movie star. He practices "radical honesty", brushes his teeth with the world’s most rational toothpaste, and outsources every part of his life to India—including reading bedtime stories to his kids.

What did you love best about My Life as an Experiment?

I'm a big A.J. Jacobs fan and have enjoyed all of his books. This book is very entertaining. But, Mr. Jacobs should get a new narrator. He narrated his own book and I equate his voice to that of Kermit. And, it is trivial, but the music played between chapters is really cheesy.
