The Areas of My Expertise is without a doubt, the funniest work of literature I have ever read. Hodgman is a genius. Oh, and great job on the page, Ecks! -CapitalQ ♫ talk ♪ 06:39, 17 Jan 2006 (EST)
Haha, thanks. A stroke of genius during the night, I guess. -Ecks
It is a pretty awesome page. -Half Empty
I just finished the paperback edition of The Areas Of My Expertise... it is seriously amazing. I liked when I hit the Hodgman Testimonials, I have heard podcast 4A so many times that I had it memorized. Jade VVV-also, got to say I agree with the comment down there,too. John Hodgman is roughly #3 on my "who to marry" list, ha. There's a list of roughly 7 people who I kind of "fan girl" over, i'll try to control it to a minimum)VVV
Does anyone else besides me find this man to be rather good looking? Or am I just strange?

So. I just picked up More Information Than You Require. Flans is listed under "Experts Consulted" "on the subject of derangement" and Linnell "on the subject of millionaireship". I thought it was funny, especially with the addition of "Aka The Deranged Millionaire" under Hodgman's name on the spine.
- Very cool. I just got it today but I noticed the Deranged Millionaire references. --badqueso 07:03, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
- He credits "The Amazing Duo of Flansburgh and Goldwasser on cocktails that women enjoy" in Areas of My Expertise, but that is even more awesome.

However minor, I thought it was kinda cool that John linked to tmbw.net on his official site. --Duke33 19:00, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
This is neither here nor there, but I just saw Hodgman this weekend at the Solid Sound Festival. He read a number of excerpts from his forthcoming book, "That is All", and it sounds like an entire section of the book will be devoted specifically to the subject of deranged millionaireship. Amusing to see that Venue Songs references are still going strong. -J-Gatz
