One Man. Nine Extraordinary Experiments... On Himself.
For his first book, AJ Jacobs read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica . For his second, he followed every single rule in the Bible. Now comes a collection of his most outrageous, hilarious and thought-provoking experiments yet. In My Experimental Life Jacobs puts himself to a series of bizarre and ridiculous tests, from total obedience to his long-suffering wife and 'Radical Honesty' , to living as a beautiful woman and outsourcing his personal life to India (whether sending an email, having a weekly chat with his parents or arguing with his wife). Written by an author who has been compared in the British press to Woody Allen and Bill Bryson, The Guinea Pig Diaries will be one of the funniest, most entertaining and most illuminating books of the year.
A. J. Jacobs ist leitender Redakteur beim "Esquire" und hat zahlreiche Artikel u. a. im "New Yorker", "Entertainment Weekly" und "The New York Times" veröffentlicht. Er lebt mit seiner Frau Julie und seinen Kindern in New York.
