Literature: More Information Than You Require

"Every man should be capable of all ideas, and I believe that in the future, he will be."
The Argentine National Poultry and Rabbit Inspector's Little Book of Shitty Aphorismsnote 

Short for:
"For your Consideration, The Firms of Dutton & Riverhead Books of New York City, Publishers of Ken Follett, Darin Strauss, David Rees, and the RZA, Present in the English Language: A Further Compendium of Complete World Knowledge in "The Areas of My Expertise" Assembled and Illumined by Me, John Hodgman, A Famous Minor Television Personality*, Offering More Information Than You Require On subjects as Diverse As: The Past (As There Is Always More of It), The Future (As There is Still Some Left), All of the Presidents of the United States, The Secrets of Hollywood, Gambling, The Sport of the Asthmatic Man (Including Hermit-Crab Racing), Strange Encounters with Aliens, How to Buy a Computer, How to Cook an Owl, And Most Other Subjects, Plus: Answers To Your Questions Posed via Electronic Mail, And: 700 Mole-Man Names, Including Their Occupations.

Yes, there is a footnote in the title.

The second installment of the Complete World Knowledge trilogy, following The Areas of My Expertise and succeeded by That Is All. Not quite sequel to The Areas of My Expertise so much as it is a continuation. The difference is that if it were a sequel, it would start on page 1, rather than 237. Very similar to the first book in many regards.

Includes some actually true material dealing with Hodgman's life, including reflections on the considerable success he had achieved since the previous book in the saga was published.

Not to be confused with Too Much Information.

This book provides examples of, and parodies, the following tropes:
