For his first book, The Know-It-All, A. J. Jacobs read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica from cover to cover in a quest to learn everything in the world. In The Year of Living Biblically, he followed every single rule of the Bible—from the Ten Commandments right on down to stoning adulterers.

Now comes a collection of his most hilarious and thought-provoking experiments yet. In his role as human guinea pig, Jacobs fearlessly takes on a series of life-altering challenges that provides readers with equal parts insight and humor.

A mix of Bill Bryson, George Plimpton, and Malcolm Gladwell, A. J. explores the big issues of our time—happiness, dating, morality, marriage—by immersing himself in eye-opening situations. You’ll be entertained by these stories—some of which are new, some of which had their start in Esquire magazine. But you’ll also learn to look at life in new ways.

The Guinea Pig Diaries is a book packed with both laughs and enlightenment—and that’s a promise we can make with radical honesty.
