Reviews

Praise for An Incomplete Education

"AN ASTONISHING AMOUNT OF INFORMATION."
-The New York Times

"IT IS PRECISELY THE BOOK THAT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED WITHOUT KNOWING THAT I ALWAYS WANTED IT. . . . It's for people who have huge gaps in their knowledge of specific areas of culture and intellectual history. . . . Cheerfully, subversively anti-academic."
-Jon Carrol, San Francisco Chronicle

"MEMORIZE THIS BOOK AND YOU CAN DROP NAMES, ALLUSIONS, AND ARCANE TERMS WITH THE BEST OF THEM, whether you (or they) know what they're talking about. . . . The book will rekindle warm memories of your favorite courses, favorite professors, favorite books, favorite theories, favorite philosophical paradoxes."
-Chicago Tribune

"RUSH TO YOUR NEAREST BOOKSTORE AND BUY An Incomplete Education. . . . [It] brings you 10,000 years of information. Imagine the power of knowing where Watteau went when the lights went out!"
-New York Daily News

"ARTICULATE AND IRREVERENT, crammed with facts, figures, drawings, definitions, and historic information sufficient to fill your every gap. . . . Judy Jones and William Wilson . . . tell you everything you should've learned but didn't.
-Esquire

"THIS BOOK GETS AN A+."
-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
