    Yes, there is a footnote in the title.

    The second installment of the Complete World Knowledge fake-almanac trilogy, following The Areas of My Expertise and succeeded by That Is All. Not quite sequel to The Areas of My Expertise so much as it is a continuation. The difference is that if it were a sequel, it would start on page 1, rather than 237. Very similar to the first book in many regards.

    Includes some actually true material dealing with Hodgman's life, including reflections on the considerable success he had achieved since the previous book in the saga was published.

    Not to be confused with Too Much Information.

    This book provides examples of, and parodies, the following tropes:

    1. WERE YOU EVEN AWARE OF IT? This is an actual quote from "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote" by Jorge Luis Borges. It might help to read this book with Google handy.
    2. Not literally.
