    Should be a textbook in every public school

    Has more useful information between two covers than any other book I can think of. Being a teacher, I have used it in many classes to familiarize inter-city students with common knowledge needed to compete in the real world.

    The basics of knowledge

    I loved reading this book. It was a required reading for my freshman seminar class however, I found myself refering to it with questions about Humanities, Literature, and Western Civilization. It is insightful and well organized.

    A most effective weapon against the dumbing of America

    I first purchased this valuable reference tool when my children were in elementary school(about 12 years ago). I have since recommended it to scores of my friends. All have reacted enthusiastically about its value to both the children and the adults in the family. It contains virtually 1000's of culturally enriching facts, divided into easy to find chapters with titles like; The Bible, Art and Literature, Science, History, Idioms,etc. It built confidence, increased curiosity and motivated my children. One fact per week and in a very short time, I was surprised at how fast their information base grew. We also used it to play trivia. I highly recommend it to anyone with children, or to adults who realize that they spend most of their college years sleeping!
