This book is just fascinating. Simultaneously terrifying and hilarious. Remarkably dated and yet remarkably relevant. I would love an update considering what has become of many players in this book since it was written. I can't imagine reading this i ...more

This is an odd book. Odd in that the title is wildly misleading. The content is interesting enough. Sometimes very much so. A collection of essays, many nothing more than long exposes on currently infamous people, there really are only two (the first ...more

The Guinea Pig Diaries by A.J. Jacobs

This was more like it. It's perhaps redundant for regular Esquire readers but for someone who only knows Jacobs' work through his books it is quite enjoyable. The chapter on Radical Honesty was the funniest thing I've read in ages. And with each chap ...more
