Publisher's Summary

This is not a book of facts; it’s a book of ‘facts’. Should you finish it believing we became the planet’s dominant species because predators found us too smelly to eat; or that the living bloodline of Christ is a family of Japanese garlic farmers – well, that’s on you.

Why are we here? Do ghosts exist? Did life on Earth begin after a badly tidied-up picnic? Was it just an iceberg that sank the Titanic? Are authors stealing their plotlines from the future? Will we ever talk to animals? And why, when you’re in the shower, does the shower curtain always billow in towards you?

We don’t know the answers to any of these questions. But don’t worry, no matter what questions you have, you can bet on the fact that there is someone (or something) out there, investigating it on your behalf. From the sports stars who use cosmic energy to office plants investigating murders, The Theory of Everything Else will act as a handbook for those who want to think differently.

Pure Audio Gold

Hilariously thought provoking and a little bit batshit. 9/10 stars. Needed another 50 chapters to completely satisfy me. Off I go to manifest a sequel or spin off podcast.

Lighthearted and entertaining

A refreshing perspective on fringe beliefs, from a very humous angle that never takes itself too seriously.

Fantastic facts, theories, and oddities

Well worth the listen, even if it’s to explore some of the weird, weirder and completely unbelievable tales of fact and possible fictional events.

I didn't hear you mispronounce anything, Dan ;)

Really interesting perspectives. Loved the part on the Titanic and The Beatles stuff. Felt smort when I already knew some stuff from Fish 🤩

Amazing

Really just an amazing listen. I love all the stories and it really gets you thinking in a way you don't always allow yourself to.

He did say don't believe anything ?

We had some great snit-bits in this book.
like Baron Trump in chapter 9.
The best story was Enoch Somes also from chapter 9, who made an 1897 pact to pop forward to 1997 where Penn from 'Penn & Teller's happened to be waiting, very good.
Dan Schreiber though has a slight penchant to preach a little in what is supposed to be off the wall 'facts'.
For example he starts off how devestating & real climate change is.
Then with a fixation on how 'Batshit' Novac Jocavitch is because of his eating habits & his reluctance to have a cov19 Vax, for a world champion whose body is a temple, it would be batshit if he did take an unknown substance.
Back in chapter 1 Dan mentions Harry Mullis, a brilliant scientist who he also claims is batshit because he says H.I.V. doesn't necessarily cause A.I.D.S.
I thought everybody knew that, but was surprised to find Dan missed the memo.
Of course Mullis too, questioned 'Climate Change', which according to Dan sends him straight to the loony bin.
Then to top it off, at the end Dan & his friends, believe in 'Spontanious Combustion' & a heap of other really off the wall bullshit.
It's almost like he has a brainwashed 'Agenda'
Lastly the 'soft rocks' is a great story, & I might steal the phrase? So long as that's O.K. with you Dan.
When you can see past Dan's agenda, the book is worth perservering with.
Enjoy 😁😁

THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE LISTEN!

Engaging through and through with incredible insights into the "bat shit" beliefs and stories of important people throughout time. Dan's performance reading his book is nothing less than perfection. If you love the podcast No Such Thing as a Fish, you will absolutely love this book. And if you haven't heard of Dan's podcast, No Such Thing as a Fish, then you need to start listening ASAP!
