Jeff Wilser is the author of the upcoming Alexander Hamilton’s Guide to Life, in stores September 20th, from Three Rivers Press.
He has written four previous books, including The Good News About What’s Bad For You… and The Bad News About What’s Good For You, which was selected as an Amazon Best Book of the Month in both Non-Fiction and Humor.
His writing has appeared in print or online in New York magazine, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, Glamour, Cosmo, Esquire, mental_floss, Men’s Fitness, MTV, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Comstock’s, The Miami Herald, The Baltimore Sun, Detroit Free Press, and The Huffington Post.
The topics? You name it. He has written about US history, health, relationships, film, travel, pop culture, the folly of juice cleanses, hashtags, monks, Game of Thrones, architecture, books, fashion (not that he’s fashionable–see t-shirt), sneak attacks of World War II, how to pick champagne, the intersection of math and magic, Finland’s school system, and the shortcomings of General Custer. He also works as a collaborator on celebrity book projects—one has involved men’s fashion, one a blockbuster sitcom.
Jeff is likely the only person alive to have written for both GQ and The Knot. His TV appearances, where he occasionally pops up as the token male, have ranged from BBC News to The View. Business and marketing stuff? Sure, he does that too, providing customer-segmentation insights to a +$1 billion publishing company. He’s also the founding editor of ThePlunge.com, the primary website for grooms. (Jeff has never been a groom.)
He lives in Brooklyn with zero dogs. He can’t tan.
