This is a book that I picked up because I thought I would read it. Never did read it. I'd like to pass it on to someone who will read it.

Since this has the '5,000 essential facts to know' list this would be a good book for someone looking to self educate or someone who homeschools. has this to say-
"In this forceful manifesto, Hirsch argues that children in the U.S. are being deprived of the basic knowledge that would enable them to function in contemporary society. Includes 5,000 essential facts to know."
