Too many references for me, but a must-have nonetheless
This is one refreshing refresher! Intended to 'Fill the potholes in one's education,' it is humorous enough to keep you chuckling (especially if you get the infinate number of references), and to-the-point enough to make for an excellent quick-reference. If you're like me, however, have a dictionary and encyclopedia handy while reading this behemoth.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Simply a great resource!
The authors of An Incomplete Education have done a wonderful job with this book. The writing style is humorous, but it still gets information (ranging from almost-necessary to trivial) across in a way that sticks. If you have a library of any kind, I would recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Harvard's Cheat Sheet
As an 18 year old student, I must say that this book is immensely helpful. I am in an International Baccalaureate program (for the unknowing, think an all-AP schedule, plus a few extra 3,000-word papers), and I have used this book repeatedly to understand some obscure English reference, to fatten up a report with some extra references, or just to learn - again- about human evolution, psychology, or the parts of an orchestra. Most important, however, is the smartmouth tone it maintains throughout. The authors of AIE write so well that I actually found myself reading this book for pleasure. This book is priceless. I would recommend it for high school, college, and graduate level students the country over. For very little cash, you can give a graduate- recent or not- a valuable tool for learning.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
