AJ Jacobs is an immersive, experimental kind of journalist and best selling author (one has led to the other). In 1997 he published The Year of Living Biblically, which is notable not only for reaching the NYT best seller list, but also because it featured in evangelical magazine Relevant and in Penthouse. It also resulted in an enormous beard and a baby.
In September 2009 he publishes The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment, which chronicles his experiments in marital harmony, multitasking, nudity and outsourcing his life.
He’s currently working on a new book called The Healthiest Human Being in the World – he investigates the meaning of ‘healthy’ whilst simultaneously trying to become it.
