John Hodgman's eagerly-awaited Final Book of Complete World Knowledge, "That is All", will be released on 11/1/11. According to the author's website, it will contain a "dark, apocalyptic vision" and "the very last information you need to know before the coming global superpocalypse called RAGNAROK, plus some information on WINE and SPORTS."
So if you are interested in surviving RAGNAROK with wit, intelligence and style, I would strongly suggest that you pre-order this intriguing compendium.
And if, after reading this treatise, you have further questions, you may direct them to the author at the times and venues set forth below during what Mr. Hodgman is ominously referring to as "THE END IS NIGH TOUR".
