Review by Francine on 1st August, 2011
 
2 stars "Not what I expected"

I thought the title was misleading. The Essential Knowledge is a random selection of topics that is hardly what anyone would consider essential. It sounded like a good book to use to set trivial pursuit type questions but it isn't like that at all. The intelligence quizzes are also disappointing. Glad I didn't spend more than $10 on it.

4 stars "A fascinating book"

Beautifully presented book full of facts and knowledge.
Covers a vast range of topics. Great to study up on before a trivia night. Plenty of questions to keep you thinking. It's worth the price imo.

5 stars "Fascinating book"

I wasn't quite sure what to expect however it provides a wealth of information in bite sized chunks across a myriad of subjects. The only down side is that our 14 year old son has purloined it for his revision LOL!

Description

The phrase "Knowledge is Power" is attributed to the British author and philosopher Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626).The world he knew was, in comparison to today, a simple and uncomplicated one. And, yet the importance of knowledge and the world around us is as important now as it was then, if not more so.

"Know It All" is a unique guide to general knowledge, combining essential information with intelligence quizzes that readers can take to test their progress.The book contains 10 sections each tackling a key subject with a quiz at the end of each section, and a final 10 mixed-subject quizzes at the end of the book.
