Author AJ Jacobs has a new book coming out that will reveal to you just how many people on this planet you are related to. (Spoiler alert: If you hate a man, anywhere on the globe, he’s probably your distant cousin-- and if you’ve slept with anyone, ever, she probably is too!) His “relatively” gonzo journalistic approach makes for some great stories and authentic opinions including the tales of a full year lived in strict accordance to biblical law.
