    Pretty interesting stuff!

    This is filled with all those things you've always wondered about, but never looked up. It covers a wide range of subjects with lots of interesting facts and notes.

    Indispensible

    I bought the first Dictonary of Cultural Literacy as an undergraduate and recently had to update to this one. Whatever edition you have, keep it on your coffee table. This book is loaded with info that you've always wondered about but never got around to checking out. It has sections on religion, philosophy, literature, history, idioms, geography, and much more. I find myself returning to it again and again. Sometimes I'd use it for term papers when I wanted a 'brief' run down on a topic before doing the heavy research. Now that I'm out of school, it comes in handy when I'm doing research for a book it's also fun to flip through it and learn oddball facts. This reference book is handy for term papers, writing projects, or simply to become a more well-rounded human being. Highly recommended.
