the best book i own. glance at it atleast once a week and learn something new
Perfect addition to the reading shelf over the commode.
Useful information. Definitely would have to buy rather than rent to get through it all.
This is a huge book but filled with as stated by the title essential knowledge. I like this book because it does spark curiosity and I want my student to seek imformation on their own great way to start out is reading this book.
i look something up in this book at least once a week. but its also pretty good just to page through. times writers write the entries, so there tends to be good, interesting writing throughout.
Duh, it's essential! It says so right in the title. Sheesh.
