Jacobs is also an editor at large of Esquire Magazine and the author of 3 other books, about three other years in which he devoted himself to a single subject and wrote about it. One year it was perfecting his body (Drop Dead Healthy), another it was his mind (The Know-It All), and in the third year he attempted to improve everything about himself (My Life as an Experiment.)
