THE GUINEA PIG DIARIES My Life as an Experiment

by | Read by A.J. Jacobs

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Author A.J. Jacobs returns with his latest project. This time he carries out a series of experiments over a year, including pretending to be a woman (online) and outsourcing as much of his life as possible. Jacobs is known for his projects. Previous efforts include a year in which he followed every rule of the Bible and another year spent reading the entire ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA. GUINEA PIG DIARIES is by far the most entertaining in the series. In a voice that would surely be described by Jacobs himself as nerdy, this master of the modern-day experiment delights listeners with his honesty and likability, as well as his hilarious anecdotes. Jacobs's narration makes the book all the more enjoyable simply because he makes us feel like we too are capable of pretty much anything.
