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 understanding.

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 listening.
