· 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.

· World and Korean history, Arts and music at a glance
The flow of history is compiled in one book so that you can understand history as well as arts of that time.

· 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.
