Description
Best known for appearing on the improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and for his award-winning podcast "The Smartest Man in the World," Greg Proops is also a fountain of historical knowledge, a wealth of pop culture trivia, and a generally charming know-it-all. This book is a rollicking reference guide to the most essential areas of knowledge in Proops's universe, with history's juiciest tales and curious backstories, name-checks from the ancient world, Satchel Paige bon mots, the merits of poetry and proper punctuation, the movies you must see and the albums you must hear, and some genuine wisdom.

"Snarky history and piquant criticism as delivered by the smartass in the back of the classroom."Kirkus Reviews

"This book is plenty glib, plenty sly, and pretty damn wise. It is also quick, funny, and, often, pointedly true."NYJournal of Books
