In his self-professed quest to "become the smartest person in the world," A.J. Jacobs undertook the daunting task of reading all 44 million words of the Encyclopedia Britannica. His dutiful notes scribbled along the way to this self-appointed title became an impressive treasury of little-known facts, a memoir of the year he spent on the journey. It's part trivia book, part journal in which he humorously details, among other things, the annoyance displayed by friends and even his own pregnant wife at his newfound and seemingly limitless supply of knowledge. All of this is captured on the daily pages of this calendar, which, like the book, not only has the potential to make readers smarter, but also touches the funny bone as well as the heart.
