367 - A.J. Jacobs: Immerse Yourself in The Creative Process

AJ Jacobs is entertaining. I think that’s the first thing I should say before I also say that he’s a six-time New York Times bestselling author. All his books are funny. And they’re extreme. I’ll explain. AJ comes up with crazy ideas and then gives us his “normal” way of life to fully immerse himself in a new (but temporary) way of life. This time he’s traveling the world to thank a thousand people who all had a hand in making his daily cup of coffee.   Links and Resources "Thanks A Thousand: A Gratitude Journey" by AJ Jacobs (you can pre-order it now)   “Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection”  by AJ Jacobs “The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible“ by AJ Jacobs “The Know-It-All: One Man’s Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World“  by AJ Jacobs  “My Life as an Experiment: One Man’s Humble Quest to Improve Himself by Living as a Woman, Becoming George Washington, Telling No Lies, and Other Radical Tests“  by AJ Jacobs  "It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree" by AJ Jacobs Visit his website ajjacobs.com Follow AJ on Facebook + Twitter
