In 2005, Queenan became the subject of a brief controversy when he criticized the book The Know-It-All, published the previous year by Esquire editor A. J. Jacobs. The criticism, which was published in The New York Times Book Review, caused New York Times readers to write letters in defense of A.J. Jacobs and his book. Jacobs himself responded to Queenan's review of his book, which expressed his hurt feelings towards the said review, yet was written in a humorous tone.
