American journalist and author A..J Jacobs has made a name for himself with his epic experiments (on himself) and his autobiographical recollections of them. His experiments include reading the entire Encyclopædia Britannica (32 volumes, approximately 40 million words) and spending an entire year living according to the moral codes of the Bible. In his newest book, The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment, Jacobs subjects himself to more hilarious and thought-provoking schemes addressing various social issues of our time. A.J. Jacobs came to studio Q today to discuss his new book.
