This is a voyage through the strange yet mesmerising mind of cult author Karl Pilkington, now in paperback. By his own admission Karl Pilkington left formal education behind with only an E in History to his name and not much else. Ever since, his thirst for knowledge has nagged. With this in mind, Karl has embarked on a tour of discovery to make up for the lost years of learning, and to find out more stuff. Karlology is the result.So what exactly has Karl Pilkington learned so far? This is a man, it should be noted, who thinks owning 1,777 acres of the moon is a good idea, and believes that the human testicles should be relocated to the earlobes. Maybe he's right. Perhaps his unique brand of wisdom and insight is what the world has been waiting for? Judge for yourself: observe, enjoy, and become a Karlologist. Illuminated by Karl Pilkington's own cartoons with extra wisdom from Ricky Gervais, Russell Brand, David Baddiel, Noel Fielding and others.
As a hospital radio DJ, Karl filled news bulletins with strange-but-true stories and used the transmitter to broadcast pirate radio, so was sacked and moved to Manchester's Piccadilly Radio, where he hosted a late-night show filled with impenetrably cryptic puzzles. He then moved to Xfm in London, where he was producer and later a star of Xfm's Ricky Gervais Show, forerunner of the legendary world-record-breaking podcasts.
