it was amazing
bookshelves: reviewed

Hodgman writes with assurance on a wide range of topics. He not only demonstrates command of the facts, but also takes meticulous care to correct popular misconceptions regarding his chosen topics. This polished expertise is all the more impressive because Hodgman's "facts" are created from whole cloth, comprising an entire counterfactual world. Hilarious in execution, but also a very sly spoof on the concept of "experts" overall.
