This book would give you a tour of authors from the West in Liberal arts. It's a repertoire of facts.

Basically an outline of Western Liberal education. I appreciated Literary and Poetry chapters. I never took literature or poetry classes. I would recommend this to high-schoolers or someone who skipped education.

Deus Vult,
Gottfried

This book rates 6 stars on the pretentious meter. The authors are mildly entertaining, they'd probably be wonderful entertainment at a cocktail party. But if you'd really like to learn fragments of this sprawling series of subjects, do check out this thing called Wikipedia. Of course there was no such thing at the time this doorstop was published. And some of the information is well, old. The country summaries are a good example, but it somehow works in that you get a snapshot of what the USA thought about various countries in the 1990s. . Sections on Art History, literature, religion, science and lexicon, were very good. Philosophy and psychology sections made my eyes glaze over, as they should, I guess.

I love the format and the conciseness of this. Useful knowledge that can come in handy in understanding the news and current events as well as history.
