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 browsing, or simply for sharing impressive, newfound knowledge with family and friends, this handbook will endow you with genuine cultural literacy in just a few hours of fun-filled reading.
