Certainly&nbsp;<b>John Hodgman&rsquo;s</b>&nbsp;&ldquo;truth telling&rdquo; passes that test.&nbsp;<i>The Daily Show&rsquo;s&nbsp;</i>&ldquo;Resident Expert,&rdquo; minor television celebrity, and deranged millionaire, Hodgman returns to CHF with the latest and final volume of his&nbsp;<i>Complete World Knowledge</i>&nbsp;trilogy,&nbsp;<i>That is All</i>. Beginning on page 596 (where the second book,&nbsp;<i>More Information Than You Require</i>, left off), Hodgman instructs us on how to make wine in a toilet, recounts the infamous unicorn incident of 1978, and gives a day-by-day report of American life in 2012 (let&rsquo;s just say that President Morgan Freeman plays a role). From a guy who has been the humor editor for the<i>&nbsp;New York Times Magazine</i>, advice columnist for&nbsp;<i>McSweeney&rsquo;s</i>, and rubbed elbows with Ira Glass on&nbsp;<i>This American Life</i>, it&rsquo;s hard to believe that is even close to all.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><div>&nbsp;</div></div><div class="eventInfo" style="padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 11px; margin-left: 0px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: arial, sans-serif; ">&nbsp;</div></p> Mon, 01 Oct 2012 17:44:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/john-hodgman-all-102803
