Overview

If you spent your school days in a haze and you feel like you're missing some essential bits of knowledge everyone's supposed to have, here's the perfect pocket guide to bring you up to speed! Within these pages are eminently readable — even browsable, skimmable — refreshers on:

  • Algebra, geometry, averages, numbers, angles, and ratios
  • Literary terms, Shakespeare's plays, great poets, and novelist, the rudiments of spelling and grammar
  • The human body, laws of physics, theory of evolution, discovery of the atom, meaning of E=MC2, and birth of the universe
  • Major world battles, names of all the United States presidents, different types of dinosaurs, historic inventions and discoveries
  • How a volcano works, who wrote the Odyssey, why there are twelve notes in a musical scale, and much, much more!

Covering fifty basic curriculum points in seven disciplines fundamental to cultural literacy (English, mathematics, science, history, geography, the classics, and music), Stuff You Should Have Learned at School will make you the center of cocktail conversation, a whiz in the boardroom, an impressive figure to potential lovers, and a child your parents can finally boast about. (Well, at the very least it'll allow you to lay legitimate claim to a decent education).
