Product description

This book speaks directly to people's desire for a better education and a fun, no-pressure 'college-like' experience. It includes single-page, entertaining entries containing easy-to-digest short bites of core information. It helps to build a solid intellectual base in history, philosophy, economics and more. In the dark about black holes? Need to brush up on your Impressionists? Skip the line at the registrar and curl up with The Bedside Baccalaureate. Each volume contains classes that rotate in groups of five, just as a typical college semester's schedule would. There are four rotations, or 20 courses, and every course consists of 18 single-page, entertaining entries. These include easy-to-digest short bites of core information that help you build a solid intellectual base in history, philosophy, economics, English and comparative literature, classics, art history, environmental science, mathematics and engineering, physical sciences and social science.
