A.J. Jacobs Biography

Renowned as "the human guinea pig," A.J. Jacobs has outsourced his life to India, read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica in a quest to become the smartest person in the world, lived modern life as the ultimate biblical man, and followed every bit of modern medical advice in a quest to become the healthiest man alive. Throwing himself into bizarre situations all in the name of a little curiosity and a lot of humor, Jacobs chronicles his experiences in his New York Times bestsellers The Year of Living Biblically and The Know-It-All, and in his latest, Drop Dead Healthy.

Known far and wide for his clever commentary and prose, Jacobs is an editor at large at Esquire magazine. He has written for The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and New York Magazine. But, it has been his unique life experiments that have greatly defined him.

By answering questions few would even think of asking, Jacobs has earned a fresh understanding of how the most absurd of moments can become the most incredibly profound. There is deeper knowledge to be gained about the bigger lessons in life by keeping an open mind and finding inspiration everywhere.

Clever, incredibly witty, and quirky, Jacobs will help you see the world in ways never imagined - through the eyes of a man who has walked in the shoes of Moses, consumed 33,000 pages of knowledge, and followed the caveman diet. His other adventures in living life as an experiment are chronicled in The Guinea Pig Diaries, a compilation of essays exploring such hilarious adventures as My Outsourced Life and My Life as a Hot Woman.
