THE MAN WHO KNOWS TOO MUCH

An information architect thats how he is known.I am talking about Ben Schott who can talk and write on virtualy anything on earth.As Matt Haber reported in his review and interview with Ben:
"With the Schott's Almanac series,he brings his same jeweler's eye precision to the
year's events.For the 2007 edition,Schott has chronicled everything from Al-Qaeda
in Iraq Leader Abu Musad al-Zarqawi to Barbaro,the kentucky Derby-winning horse
that broke its ankle at the Freakness,to the molecular structure of Tamiflu.Its a dense
,strange,at times precious book that makes readers feel nostalgic for the very recent
past and simultaneously immersed in the ongoing narrative of history as it's told in
newspaper headlines,tabloids,and the goverment statistics.
Interview:
Ben said" I was always the student who found the footnote much more
interesting than the main block of text."
