Michael Finkel (n) -
1. Author of "The Stranger in the Woods"
2. Inventor of the Complex "Barstool Test"
3. Beneficiary of a Life-Altering Coincidence
What images are conjured when one utters the word "hermit"? An unshaved guru who resides in the wilderness? A Luddite who fears and shuns society? A fancy way of saying homeless? We explore this concept in depth as Michael walks us through his latest book "A Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit. Not only that, we learn about the highly useful, although extraordinarily complex "Barstool Test", as well as the extremity of one man's obsession. Michael also makes a prediction to be pondered in 20 years.
