One man. Ten extraordinary quests.

Bestselling 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.

And in a new adventure, Jacobs undergoes scientific testing to determine how he can put his wife through these and other life-altering experiments—one of which involves public nudity.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ray Charbonneau | 2/19/2014

    " His schtick works much better in shorter form. When one gimick is stretched out over an entire book, it gets tedious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Patricia | 2/18/2014

    " An interesting compilation of articles written by a journalist who decided to challenge himself with living under different for each month of a year, many of them a little bizarre. I was a personal fan of the "George Washington" month myself. A book you can read, put aside, read a bit more and pick up as it is just a compilation of articles so no looming drama anywhere but enjoyable. "

    " good aj humour! "

    " I don't think it had quite as many laugh-out-loud moments as his first two books, and it had a different feel because he talked about a number of short-term experiments instead of one long-range experiment. But, I still really enjoyed it. "
