That Is All from the Author: John Hodgman. John Hodgman-bestselling author, The Daily Show's "Resident Expert", minor television celebrity, and deranged millionaire-brings us the third and final installment in his trilogy of Complete World Knowledge. In 2005, Dutton published The Areas of My Expertise, a handy little book of Complete World Knowledge, marked by the distinction that all of the fascinating trivia and amazing true facts were completely made up by its author, John Hodgman. At the time, Hodgman was merely a former literary agent and occasional scribbler of fake trivia. In short: a nobody. But during an interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, an incredible transformation occurred. He became a famous minor television personality. You may ask: During his whirlwind tornado ride through the high ether of minor fame and outrageous fortune, did John Hodgman forget how to write books of fake trivia? The answer is: Yes. Briefly. But soon, he remembered! And so he returned, crashing his Kansas farmhouse down upon the wicked witch of ignorance with More Information Than You Require, a New York Times bestseller containing even more mesmerizing and essential fake trivia, including seven hundred mole-man names (and their occupations). And now, John Hodgman completes his vision with That Is All, the last book in a trilogy of Complete World Knowledge. Like its predecessors, That Is All compiles incredibly handy made-up facts into brief articles, overlong lists, and beguiling narratives on new and familiar themes. It picks up exactly where More Information left off-specifically, at page 596-and finally completes COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, just in time for the return of Quetzalcoatl and the end of human history in 2012.

Books Are Well Written Or Badly Written That Is All from the Author: Kristina Kolb. Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: A, The Open University, language: English, abstract: Following French Symbolism and Decadence movements, the late 19th century bore witness to the rise of Aestheticism, defined and promoted by authors such as Théophile Gautier, Walter Pater and Oscar Wilde. As put forward by Pater , life consists of nothing more than “impressions, images (and) sensations” and literature was to maximize these “flickering” moments. Influenced by Gautier and Pater, Wilde declared in his famous preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray that “all art is quite useless” , denying that there was such a thing as an “immoral” book and condemning utilitarianism in literature. While he acknowledged that “the moral life of man forms part of the subject-matter of the artist”, he rigidly opposed the opinion put forward by writers such as Orwell that all art is simultaneously propaganda. Nevertheless, the aforementioned preface was not only written as a reaction against Victorian literature, but also being written a year after the first publication of the book, giving it the appearance of an act of self-defense against harsh criticism and casting a shadow of doubt over its face-value. Furthermore, Wilde does make concessions to different interpretations of a text, even if at the reader’s own risk. In the light of this, the question remains in how far Wilde’s view is applicable to texts written in a different context, bearing in mind both author intentionality and reader interpretation. I will focus on Mansfield’s story The Garden Party and three key passages from Gibbon’s Sunset Song in order to analyze with reference to Wilde’s statement in order to analyze its validity in the context of these two writers.

All The Light We Cannot See from the Author: Anthony Doerr. "From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work"--

The Physics Of God from the Author: Gary Nickolaus. The author has spent his life in an obsessive quest to understand the nature of reality and the purpose of existence. Many would say this is a symptom of Asperger s syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. While I certainly fit this profile I believe there is a different more amazing reason. If an individual actualizes their potential in this space-time it is also actualized in the Singularity the space-less, time-less part of the dual universe at the quantum level. Each step of my life has led to find the answers because in the Singularity I had already found them. Here are the answers to God, the universe, and everything, I give them to you now because you are in desperate need of them, do with them what you will. Buy the book or not, read the book or not, I do not care, for I have completed my task and fulfilled my destiny, and that is all that matters. But if you do read the book be prepared for a remarkable vision of the nature of reality, and a magnificent purpose of existence illustrated with poetry and painting.
