A.J. Jacobs is the editor at large at Esquire magazine and the author of four New York Times bestsellers.

The Know-It-All,  (2004) spent eight weeks on the New York Times paperback bestseller list. It was praised by Time magazine, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, USA Today and Janet Maslin in the New York Times.

The Year of Living Biblically, (2007) could be found for three months on the NYT bestseller list, and was praised by Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, The New York Times Book Review, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today and others. It appeared on the cover of the evangelical magazine Relevant, but was also featured in Penthouse.

My Life as an Experiment: One Man's Humble Quest to Improve Himself, (2010) which includes some previously published experiments (including “My Outsourced Life,”).

And now Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection, (2012) where Jacobs explores every aspect of the body—from biceps to the brain, from testosterone to toenails—to get into shape.

Jacobs grew up in New York City, where he currently lives with his family.
