A. J. Jacobs

A.J. Jacobs is the author of three New York Times bestsellers, including The Know-It-All (which chronicled his journey reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica) and The Year of Living Biblically (about his attempt to follow every single Biblical rule, from the Ten Commandments on down to stoning adulterers). His most recent work is My Life as an Experiment--a collection of his articles. Jacobs' books have inspired dozens of schools to try social experiments of their own. Jacobs is also the editor at large at Esquire magazine, has written for The New York Times, and is an occasional correspondent for NPR. He lives in New York City with his wife Julie and their three sons, who attend The School at Columbia. You can visit his website at ajjacobs.com.
