Why are conservatives on the right and liberals on the left? What is an archetype? Most people drop these and other cultural references in conversation all the time without really knowing much about them. But with this witty, information-packed audiobook, you can quickly bone up on the actual facts behind the multitude of data, events, and words that come at you each day - and that you've been casually bandying about without really undersatnding.

Here are invaluable explanations of a wide range of topics that are assumed to be common knowledge, from deciphering newsspeak (what is a spin doctor?) to psychobabble (what's the difference between the ego and the id) to cyberlingo (what is cyberlingo?)...from the supposedly obvious (what makes cholesterol good or bad?) to the deceptively simple (what is a formula race car?).

Perfect as a reference tool, for casual listening, or simply for sharing impressive, newfound knowledge with family and friends, this audio handbook will endow you with genuine cultural literacy in just a few hours of fun-filled listening. Download and start listening now!

    " Some parts are helpful/interesting, but some parts are painful. It would be a better reference book... but there is always wikipedia. "

    " Some entries were very interesting, others were not. "

    " Like wikipedia, but shorter and better written. It's one of those books you can choose a page at random and read if you have a bored minute somewhere. "

    " Not really that informative. I guess I'm just a genius.

    (please understand I am in no way actually really this obnoxiously sincere.) "
