Overview

I learned everything I need to know already in school! Wouldn’t it be great if I could remember even a tenth of what I learned? What is value of π(pi), what is second largest country in the world, how do I solve a quadratic equation… It would be great if you already know the answer to this question, but if you forgot it all, but can’t go back to school textbooks, this book is for you. Knowledge Textbook for Adults discusses in a fun way the basic knowledge that all adults should know and have learned in school. Unlike other common-sense books, this is a fun and easy adult textbook to fill your knowledge storage. You don’t have to be afraid of questions from kids or talking with your friends anymore.

Features

· Based on school curriculum but organized in one page to make it easy to read and understand
If we just organized basic knowledge from textbooks, that would have been just a reference book. We picked out knowledge that students are learning that adults should be reminded of and organize it in a way that is easy to read and remember for a long time.

· A book for Koreans planned and written by Koreans
If you look at the world map, placement of continents change based on the country that made the map. Therefore, even if we are dealing with the same topic, foreign author and Korean author would write things differently. This is because the background knowledge and viewpoints are different. Therefore, we took Korean textbooks and selected the topics that we needed to write this book.

· Knowledge textbook for adults that want to quickly and easily become smarter
Books in liberal arts and philosophy give you satisfaction when you buy them, but rather than reading and acquiring the knowledge within, they often become displays on your bookshelf. This common-sense knowledge filled book gives you helpful knowledge to use in your everyday life.

· Book that is not just great for adults but also great for elementary and middle school students
One book that can teach you common sense knowledge from school curriculum. Lengthy explanations are gone. Only the simple, easy concept remains. This book is like the teacher that tells you only the important bullet points. Just reading through this book once can give you most of the knowledge that you learn over the course of 9 years in school.
